About Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand “A Life More Compelling Than Fiction.”

That was the slogan of the 1997 Academy Award-nominated documentary of Ayn Rand: A Sense of Life. The film poster describes Ayn Rand as “The most original, uncompromising and controversial writer/philosopher of the twentieth century.” Born and raised in the mysticism and collectivism of Russia, she escaped to America in 1926 and became a champion of reason and individualism.
