Monthly Movies that Matter – May 2015

The Zeitgeist Movement Queensland brings you Monthly Movies that Matter, a free event headlining with the documentary, ‘The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil’. 

This event is much more than watching a movie! Hear from coordinators about upcoming projects and events you can be involved in, including the Community Tours project and TZM Australia Podcasts. We will also show a range of short clips to educate and inspire a train of thought that can lead to a more sustainable future for all.

‘The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil’ tells the story of the hardships and struggles as well as the community and creativity of the Cuban people when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990 and Cuba’s imports of oil were cut by more than half – and food by 80 percent. (Approx. 50 mins). Check out the trailer here:

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. 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. Feel free to bring books to trade… and to bring your flash drive to share resources.

We look forward to seeing you there!
