For this meetup, we are going to return to the old format of voting for the film you would most like to watch, then watching the winning film prior to the meetup (I'll post a link to stream the winning film) and discussing it when we meet in person! There are so many interesting films out there, it's hard to narrow them down to just a few to choose from! Here are this month's selections:

Kumaré (2012)

A provocative social experiment-turned-documentary, Kumare follows American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he transforms himself into a wise Indian guru, hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith. Instead, he finds himself forging profound connections with people from all walks of life -- and wondering if and when to reveal his true self. Will his followers accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? Winner of South by Southwest's Audience Award, Kumare is an insightful look at faith and belief. --

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine - When an unusual classified ad inspires three cynical Seattle magazine employees to look for the story behind it, they discover a mysterious eccentric named Kenneth, a likable but paranoid supermarket clerk, who believes he's solved the riddle of time travel and intends to depart again soon. Together, they embark on a hilarious, smart, and unexpectedly heartfelt journey that reveals how far believing can take you. --

War Witch (2012)

Komona is only 12 years old when she is kidnapped by rebel soldiers and enslaved to a life of guerrilla warfare in the African jungle. Forced to commit unspeakable acts of brutality, she finds hope for survival in protective, ghost-like visions, and in a tender relationship with a fellow soldier named Magician. Together, they manage to escape the rebels' clutches, and a normal life finally seems within reach. But after their freedom proves short-lived, Komona realizes she must find a way to bury the ghosts of her past. --

    I am so sorry guys; I came down with a cold a few days ago and it's not going away as quickly as I would like! I'd like to get your opinions... do you want to reschedule? Or do you want to go ahead and have the meetup without me? Or does it not bother you to be around someone who has a cold? Please let me know. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
