In this final chapter we'll see scenes from 'Galt's Gulch', the fictional utopia of creative capitalists. We'll also hear Galt's speech, dramatizing Ayn Rand's message in Atlas Shrugged and calling for individualism and freedom.
The Atlas Society has supported the movie team throughout the trilogy , offering insights and providing connections between the movie and the philosophy of Objectivism. Fans of Atlas Shrugged will recognize September as a significant time in the novel (the story begins on September 2), while the politically inclined will recognize September as anticipating midterm elections. Producers John Aglialoro and Harmon Kaslow have taken advantage of American politicial unrest and the timing of elections for the previous movies as well, with Part 1 released on April 15 in 2011, and Part 2 released before the 2012 presidential election.
