The year was 2006. A small-budget, unique comedy called Idiocracy was released — and subsequently ignored. It grossed a little under $500,000 worldwide, on a budget of $2–$4 million. However, it has since developed a solid cult following, with people even debating whether the film is legitimately a prophetic documentary.

Check out the film's trailer below.

Idiocracy follows Joe Bauers, an average American, who is selected by the military to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program due to his middling intelligence, personality and looks. However, due to unfortunate circumstances, he is forgotten about and awakens 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.

Now, on Idiocracy's 10th anniversary, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is hosting a screening and Q&A with director Mike Judge and star Maya Rudolph.

And if like me you can't make the event, then don't worry as the post-screening Q&A will be streamed via Facebook Live, with questions being taken from the live audience as well as participants watching online, using the hashtag on Twitter.

Tickets can be bought here:

The post screening Q&A will be taking place online at:

The screening takes place on October 4, starting at 6:45 p.m., followed by the Q&A at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica at 8:25 p.m.

Why? Because it's got electrolytes.
