But when Bradbury wrote his book it was set in the distant future; HBO's adaptation is set in "alternate tomorrow, right here right now", Bahrani warned. "He's just an exaggeration of it now", Bahrani said.

As you can see, there's no real footage from the movie here, but the imagery of burning books isn't something we stumble across in movies and TV shows too often, even those set in dystopian futures like Fahrenheit 451, named so because it's the temperature at which book paper catches fire and burns.
