Payton Beckholt You must have your film viewing and notes completed by Monday, May 20th Dystopia Socratic Seminar “Ticket-in-the-Door” Questions to consider as you watch: What warnings/messages does this film contain about the future or society currently? What specific details from the work point to these warnings? In other words, give specific evidence from the work that supports these warnings and HOW these details convey those warnings. Do you think the warnings contained in this work are something to be concerned about actually happening now or in our future? Why or why not? Analyze similarities and differences between your film and 1984 ? STEP A) Watch the Film and Record Your Jotted Notes on the Film: **Make these DETAILED and analytical KEY EVENTS/SUMMARIES A moral fusion between law and order and clinical care. Accurate painting on wall shows frail, dirty beings whom were tortured by doctors in the past Drew screw into brain, icy water until they drowned Now treat them in a calm way Rachel escaped, she killed all three of childed, drowned them in lake then ate a meal and got caught She starved herself when first arriving at shutter island Rachel represses her current memory of being in the institute, she pretended the people in charge of her are message carriers and postal workers. 67 patients, the note says “who is 67?” -rachel Very stingy with the investigators The environment has old-fashioned towers and large rocks/cliffs, surrounded by water Men of violence are the psychiatrists prime study, his expertise Doesn’t mean you are a violent man “Very impressive defense mechanisms” -psychiatrist State of the mental health field: Talk to patient listen to them and they will be bettered, rachels flaw was ‘refusing to realize what was wrong’ Do not lie to patients say bombs that can reduce people to ash and screens with moving and talking people on them Dr sheehan's a good doctor, they believe he would never hurt them 2nd person to disappear from the island, Andrew. He killed the investigators wife from starting a fire. When talked to a patient, she wrote “RUN” on his notes. This was directly after she was asked if she thought Dr sheehan would ever hurt her People know of this place, but no one is brave enough to talk about it

A previous patient the investigator spoke to says that he pleaded for the death sentence and they give him life in prison instead. He told of hallucinations of dragons Crazy people are the perfect face to hide behind, they talk and no one listens to them; it seems the law of the hospital is to not speak of the true happenings Ashcliffe Rachel has suddenly been “found” (not a scratch on her) She says her previous day consisted of making breakfast for Jim and the children then went for a long swim in the lake She cries and mistakes Marshal for Jim then suddenly snaps out of it saying who are you… I buried Jim. Seems like some sort of psychotic episode.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
