The 20th Anniversary of the release of

2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of the release of Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life—the first film to examine Ayn Rand as a person, writer and artist. In celebration, special screenings of the movie (with special panel discussions and Q & A’s with the director, Michael Paxton, and others) will be held in various cities across the country.
