This month on Navigating Netflix we’re joined by Eric Mueller from the Tragedy & Hope community who’s here to talk about ‘The Hunger Games’ film series. From brutal economics to child sacrifice, the films (and books) offer up a dystopic world that’s like a behind-the-scenes version of ‘The Running Man’. Are they a prescient look into our possible future as a “shattered union” – or just another blast of corporate agitprop?
