September 9, 2016 at 7:00pm – Where to Invade Next (120mins, Michael Moore, 2015)

WhereToInvadeNextWHERE TO INVADE NEXT is Michael Moore’s most recent documentary film exploring good societal ideas from around the world. Instead of invading countries to appropriate their oil, Moore proposes that we should, instead, invade to steal a country’s good ideas and implement them in our own.  In the film, Moore ‘invades’ Italy to find generous vacation time policies, France to find school lunches prepared by actual chefs, Germany to find  living wage jobs and paid health care, Finland to find education focused on learning rather than testing, Slovenia to find tuition free colleges, Norway to find rehabilitation the goal of its prisons (none privatized), Portugal to find decriminalized drug policies, and Iceland to find that women participate more equitably in government and business at all levels.  Expect Moore’s humorous touch to evidence itself throughout the movie.

View the trailer.

Please join us for the film’s showing.  It’s FREE and open to the public! Donations to defray cost of screening rights gladly accepted.  Doors open at 6:30 P.M. Parking is available on NE 89th and NE 90th streets. The film begins at 7:00 P.M with a facilitated community discussion to follow.
