Adventure Video of the Week: The Fruits of Dystopia

This film is about escaping from the daily grind to have some fun—that's it. Don't stress if you don't quite get the meaning of the quotes from 1984, A Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, or if you don't understand the exact reason for the shots of power lines, ants, and grubs. There is a reason Cyrus Sutton has included all of those dystopian elements in his beautiful edit, but the shift from people driving through the city to surfing waves and skating in parks is enough to make the point. Go out and enjoy yourself.

The song that kicks in at 4:04 helps too. That's Nicole Reynolds on guitar with the straightforward lyrics. The song is called "The Only Ones," just in case you want to look it up for another listen.
