When I was in middle school (late 70s), my class watched a series of film strips about the science fiction genre. Two strips discussed the genre in general, one was a reading of Ray Bradbury’s “Night Meeting” with original artwork (kind of psychedelic), and one was a reading of the first chapter of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” (the tour of the hatchery) but instead of original artwork, they used paintings by famous artists, including George Tooker’s “Government Bureau” and David Alfaro Siquieros’ “Echo of a Scream”. Every now and then I look online to see if anyone has posted a video of any of these film strips, but so far, no luck.

Anybody ever see these strips before?
