If you love discussing movies that matter - that make a difference - this is the group for you. We will focus on movies that make a statement about social, political or economic conditions. Films that stimulate thinking about the human condition and the future of mankind.
I'll pick movies that are available on platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Some will be my favorites while others will be suggestions by members.

Our focus will be in primary themes and commentary on the contemporary human condition.
