"Engrossing... A hymn...
to an original thinker"

Ayn Rand was born in 1905 in St. Petersburg,
Russia. Escaping the death warrant of the
Soviet state, she would later defy the cultural
and political views of contemporary America
in such best-selling novels as The
and Atlas Shrugged. Her
unique philosophy, Objectivism, upholds the
 principles of reason and rational self-interest.
A life more
compelling than fiction

Challenging the cultural tradition of 2,500
years, Ayn Rand became the foremost
defender of individualism. Through
interviews, stills and animated sequences
Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life explores her life
and her writings—from her days in Soviet
Russia and her arrival in America to her career
in the Hollywood of the '20s and '30s and her
life as a controversial author.
