In the last five years, there have been several 'movements' taking place for people's rights including the Occupy Movement. Issues about class, race, and religion don't seem to go away. In addition, there are issues not shared through our main media outlets. An example is GMOs or genetically modified organisms. People are marching all over the world for better pay, higher minimum wages and more safety and education for children. There are well produced narrative films and documentaries, feature length and shorts that address these issues. Can films change the world? I believe the documentary, "Blackfish" has proven that! It's taken films about 'the truth' to a whole new level and audience. Movies That Matter LA will be about seeing and discussing films and raising awareness for these social issues. Being in LA, there are an endless supply of movie venues such as theaters, but there's also film showcases and cafes showing films too. Let's change the world or at least be a part of the conversation.
