V for Vendetta is marching in streets from Catalonia to Hong Kong; a centuries old symbol reinvented in the 1982 graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, and further popularized by the Wachowski Sisters movie of 2005. Even Occupy was almost 10 years ago?! Why has this mask and story lived on in protests? How is V for Vendetta a unique dystopian text?
I'm joined by Ajay Singh Chaudhary PHD, executive director of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research and Ange Tran, artist and designer working on projects for radical social change.
We discuss how the mask has been an effective tool and why the movie and comics still work for us.
