Movies That Matter is back! And it has moved to a new place and time: Lentil As Anything in Newtown, on the first Sunday of the month at 6PM.
Movies That Matter is a film night hosted by The Zeitgeist Movement Sydney Chapter (TZM Sydney), in which we play one to three interesting and relevant short videos (such as animations or TED talks) followed by a short discussion, and a thought-provoking main film. The purpose is to bring us together, to promote constructive discussion, to challenge our own preconceptions and biases, and to revisit key elements of TZM's holistic socioeconomic model (NLRBE, i.e. Natural Law/Resource Based Economy), and its philosophy and proposal.
This week we're showing The Man from Earth. Filmed as a play, in near real-time, no special effects, average acting, this brilliant 90-minute film is by far one of the most unusual movies ever made. It is totally engrossing and tantalising, not to your eyes, not to your ears, but rather your brain. Its content is very relevant to TZM as it challenges the official story and everything we take for granted.
We invite you at 6PM for a quick social dinner downstairs, and for sharing a couple of clips and a chat at 6:30PM upstairs. The feature film will start at 7:30PM. We may continue the conversation after the film at the pub next to the station.
Lentil As Anything provides delicious vegan food in a convenient space in the heart of Newtown. Food and film is on donation to Lentil ($15 recommended). Looking forward to seeing you all there!
