Many films are adapted after true life events and sometimes facts can be stranger than fiction. Films can help open our eyes to things that in reality we have not and may never experience in our lifetimes. Films can preempt the future, films can also reminisce the past.
As we live day to day, we are exposed to happenings that could leave us inspired, excited, happy, sad, appalled, angry, mad or even mixed emotions.
Communication help us deal with such emotions coz talking about it sometimes open new perceptive, understanding or acceptance. Communication can help us grow.
That's why sometimes after watching a movie, it's so inspiring to talk, banter and discuss as each of us receive the movie differently.
Personally I think all films deliver a message, it depends on where and how you look for it. I would agree though that some movie just provide sheer brainless entertainment for one and a half hours.
Our concept is simple, group members gather to watch a preselected movie with a message (either chosen by the organizers or you can suggest/share a movie that has inspired you). We will then share the experience with the group during a facilitated discussion.
Anyone is welcome to attend, and you can share as little or as much of your thoughts as you feel comfortable.
We look forward to sharing some good movies, good food and good company,with you all.
I am also the organizer for 2 other groups. Please feel free to explore and join if you wish.
