You are invited to join the Social Justice Committee for a screening of the 2002 BBC award-winning documentary “The Century of the Self” by filmmaker Adam Curtis. This four-part series explores the various ways that governments and corporations have used modern psychology to manipulate us, appealing to our primitive impulses to promote a consumer society and an obedient citizenry. Understanding what has been hidden from 20th Century history can better prepare us to overcome its obvious sequel into the 21st Century.
All episodes will be shown on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Lobby: April 16, 23, 30 and May 7. Stay for the Q & A session after each episode led by Garry Garvey and Swami Pujananda. Each episode can stand alone, so even if you miss the first Tuesday, please attend when you can and feel free to bring friends.
