The Commons is a documentary film about communities re-asserting sustainable futures using consensus, equity and shared resources – ancient Commons principles. The film shares the increasing privatization and destruction of commons, primarily in the United States, and shows how many activists are re-taking commons, re-establishing communities controlling heir own commons: maker spaces, land trusts, cooperatives, food production and distribution, housing, education, community centers – all using ancient Commons practices.
Doors open at 5:30pm, feature film begins at 6pm and will be followed by a brief Q&A with Filmmakers and a group discussion about creating commons in our community. Bring friends and family, neighbors and colleagues. This is a film about solutions across the country we can implement today to regain democracy in our politics, workplace and beyond. This event is free of charge and open to the public. Visit http://commonsfilm.com/ to find out more information and learn about https://liberatedlens.org/ co-sponsoring the event.
