Considering how Georgina Orwell was known to be a hypnotist in cahoots with Count Olaf (and therefore the Firestarters) and someone feared by Sally Sebald, and was someone whose outfit resembles the standard V.F.D. Optometrist Disguise, it is likely that either she had something to do with the message involved in the film, or inspired it in some way.
Netflix Series Divergent Canon
While only one seen is shown, it seems that someone (dressed similarly to Georgina) is hypnotizing several people. Dolores and a Man escape into the woods, but Dolores is hypnotized and begins clucking like a chicken and playing the violin.
