In the Penal Colony

Just read Franz Kafka's In the Penal Colony and found it very powerful, dark and enigmatic. The story focuses on the machine and the associated processes of an outmoded form of justice. Without giving away to much the paradox that occurs between the machine and those who follow its infallible process is an interesting one and perhaps something to be considered when trying to understand our current environment...do we live and die by the machine or does the machine set us free.



Zeotrope is a film adaptation that is loosely based on the Kafka's book
