The films we see have some kind of social commentary. The first one we watched was "Where to Invade Next" by Michael Moore. The next one is "The Man in the White Suit" from 1951, with Alec Guinness. It's a science fiction comedy about a man who develops a fabric that never wears out. The one after that is "Food Fight" about how employees and shoppers changed the course of a major grocery business, here in New England. The one after that is, "The Mask You Live In," which follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.
You can do this! Share a link to this blog post. Choose a film to watch. Invite ten of your friends to join you. We're doing this early on Sunday evenings, but you can pick any time. Let me know how it works out. Just click on the link that says "n Comments" (however many there are) and let us know how well you did.
Soon, I'm going to hold a discussion group where each person has to bring another person who did not vote the same way they did in the November election. For example: A Hillary voter has to bring a Trump voter. A Stein voter has to bring someone who didn't vote. This will be about listening, not arguing. I have a structure in mind, which I will explain as the group sits down to start. We will keep track of time. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
