The Zeitgeist Movement Queensland brings you Monthly Movies that Matter, headlining with the documentary, 'Paradise or Oblivion'.
This film details the root causes of poverty, corruption, war, environmental degradation and other detrimental symptoms caused by our current established system. It advocates a new socio-economic system - a Resource-Based Economy (RBE). The film details the need to outgrow the inefficient methods of politics, law and business, and use the methods of science, combined with high technology, to provide for the needs of all the world's people. The concept of an RBE is updated to present-day knowledge and was first coined by Jacque Fresco, a Social Engineer, Futurist, Inventor and Industrial Designer who has developed the concept for over 70 years. . Here is an RT interview with him.
As this month's Monthly Movies is on Valentine's Day, we will also watch a few clips leading up to the film about love, relationships and sexuality. Here is a sneak peak of one of the short clips we will show.
Each month we also vote on next month’s movie or theme. Everyone in attendance is welcome to make a suggestion and vote using minimum-opposition.
The event will be held in the Brisbane Square Library in the Theatrette FREE OF CHARGE.
This event is much more than just watching a movie. It’s a perfect opportunity to learn more about a more positive future, find out more about what’s happening in the Zeitgeist Movement locally, nationally and globally… and if you’d like to be more involved. Most importantly, it’s a great way to make friends, connect with like-minded people and have a great time.
After the film we mingle at the cafe next door, please feel free to join us for this too if you can't make it to the movie. Bring your flash drive
We look forward to seeing you there!
