We are happy to host SHYFT Hamburg’s screening of:

"Free Lunch Society"

In a world in constant evolution, technology development is starting to make lives easier and replace humans in laborious tasks. An economy based on human’s work may soon be obsolete, and it is important to think about new economic models that can sustain a technologically assisted society.

A basic income for everyone: utopic or possible?
Since 1976, Alaska Permanent Fund, an investment fund derived from offshore oil and gas revenues, allows Alaska’s inhabitants to beneficiate of a monthly allocation of 1.884$.

What would you do if your income were taken care of?

Free lunch society is a 1h35 long German documentary that explores the possibility of a basic income for everyone.
The idea of a basic income is questioned and experiment in many places today, and the movie provides an overview on the debates and discussions in all political and scientific camps.


This documentary has mixed language of German and English, and will be screened with English subtitles.
