What we're about
A laid-back community exploring classic philosophical questions through the medium of film. If you are sick of small talk, and truly dig investigating the human experience but don't have the time or the attention span for a book club, you will love our group. Member-selected films we discuss are not restricted in any major sense--art house to mainstream, inception to present day, almost all genres.
One criterion for film selection is its ability to inspire discussion focused on classic questions of philosophy. Special guest speakers on occasion may be announced. Members should enjoy hearing a diversity of opinions and have a healthy love/hate relationship with humankind. We meet to comment, criticize and thereby teach one another things we might not have considered about particular films and philosophies.
PLEASE NOTE: We meet to discuss but do NOT actually screen the films! This is to allow time for ideas to marinate and to avoid copyright infringement issues. Many of the initial films selected are showing in theaters.
WARNING: Sometimes, we select mediocre, pop culture, films --not just the "Masterpieces" as a college film appreciation course might line up. Our menu of films is Member-selected. Think Mystery Science Theater when we select such films...
CHECK DISCUSSION BOARD FOR LOCAL EVENTS AND OTHER MATTERS. We avoid endorsing and promoting any particular commercial ventures. But will share events that might be of interest to local community.
