Starting Wednesday, June 20, at 7:00 p.m., Conscientious Projector’s first ever Summer Film Series at All Saints opens with Tom Shadyac’s resonant and uplifting reflection on the human condition in these uncertain times, I AM. Tom, who will speak in the Rector’s Forum on June 10, asks two questions in the film, “What is wrong with the world?” and “What can we do about it?” then calls on some of the world’s great thinkers for direction and inspiration. The series features a “best of” sampling of documentaries that Conscientious Projector has shown in the past year and a half with our partners at The Armory Center for the Arts. Other selections include The Economics of Happiness (July 11), Climate Refugees (July 25) and Home (August 15), subsequent dates and titles to be determined. Join us for popcorn, good conversation and some excellent movies suitable for audiences of mature teens and older. The films are free and will be shown in the Forum at All Saints Church, located at 132 N. Euclid Avenue, Pasadena, California.
Koch Brother’s Exposed, Robert Greenwald’s hard-hitting investigation of multi-billionaire siblings Charles and David Koch’s efforts to undermine democracy, reverse social progress and end government’s regulatory power, is this month’s Conscientious Projector presentation, showing on Thursday, June 14, 7:00 p.m. at The Armory Center for the Arts. The Brave New Films production features interviews with Sen. Bernie Sanders, Van Jones, Bill McKibben, Jim Hightower, Katrina vanden Heuvel, John Nichols, Lawrence Lessig, Ben Jealous and more as it examines the brothers’ secretive but far-reaching influence in the extreme rightward direction of American politics.
The film is being shown in partnership with Brave New Foundation. All Saints Church Rector Ed Bacon will lead a community discussion following the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
