Storyboard Text

  • 1984
  • By: Ahmad and Julian
  • Prologue
  • You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.
  • Rising Action
  • The actual writing would be easy. All [I] had to do was to transfer to paper the interminable restless mono- logue that had been running inside [my] head, literally for years.
  • George Orwell
  • Conflict
  • We are enemies of the Party.
  • In this society, there are only three mega-countries, Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia. Winston Smith, the protagonist, is a government worker living in London which was taken over by Oceania. Everyone's lives along with Winstons is full of constant oppression, surveillance, and the complete absence of any pleasure.
  • Climax
  • You may as well say good-bye
  • You can not do anything in secret, the government always knows about everything, even your thinking called thoughtcrime. This kind of life is what Winston disapproves of. In rebellious of it, he starts to break very tiny and unnoticeable laws. He goes to his local black market to buy a notebook, which he then starts writing his antigovernment thoughts in, and that is against what "Big Brother's" rules. This triggers him to start his search for other rebels.
  • Falling Action
  • We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.
  • Winston knows that everyone is deprived of everything except breathing, so he might as well fight for something more. Winston can find two other people in his workplace who think the way he does and he joins "The Brotherhood,"  which is an underground rebel group set on overthrowing this totalitarian government. But if anybody finds out anything he is doing he can be killed, imprisoned, or even tortured.
  • Winston and his "girlfriend" has been renting a room on top of the black market, which he bought the notebook from so that they can talk freely and be themselves. But it turns out that one of the guys they were supposedly joining the brotherhood with was a member of the party (O'Brien). Winston and Julia were arrested violently and taken to some prison and torturing facility.
  • O'Brien, the one who lied to Julia and Winston beat and tortured Winston until he confessed he was wrong, and truly believed it as well. Winston starts to realize that nothing can top physical pain, and slowly starts to believe O'Brien's every word even though he knew O'Brien lied to him and Julia, he still believes him.
