Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: The Truman Show

What if your life wasn't your life? What if instead, everything around you, every moment, was engineered to evoke reactions, to create a story - one that was then broadcast around the world? This is the premise of Peter Weir's The Truman Show, which starred Jim Carrey in one of his first dramatic turns. 23 years on, we talk about the movie's larger impact, and what it has to say about our fascination with watching people, and reality television.

Produced by: Arvindh Yuvaraj, Lee Chwi Lynn and Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Arvindh Yuvaraj, Lee Chwi Lynn and Sharmilla Ganesan
