      Social Justice Committee "Double Feature" Movie Screening

      The Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship presents a “Double Feature” movie screening on Friday, October 25 at 7 p.m. at the UU Fellowship, 67 South Randolph Avenue, Poughkeepsie.

      1. “An Economic Hit Man confesses and Calls to Action.” John Perkins, author of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” gives an 18-minute TED Talk in which he describes the methods he used to bribe and threaten heads of state in order to create a global empire and he reveals how the leaders who did not “play the game" were assassinated or overthrown. He brings us up to date about the way the economic hit man system has spread, and offers a strategy for turning this around. “Each of us," he says, “can participate in this exciting revolution. We can transform a system that is consuming itself into extinction into one that is sustainable and regenerative."

      2. “Real Value” is an award-winning economics documentary that delivers a refreshing meditation on how business can be used to create value beyond profit. Motivational stories from social entrepreneurs working in agriculture, apparel, insurance, and biofuel, are connected with the captivating science behind our perception of value from world-renowned professor of psychology and behavioral economics, Dan Ariely.

      The film serves as inspiration for any business owner, entrepreneur, or customer who is looking to better understand what happens when a business puts people, planet, and profit on equal footing.

      Refreshments will be served. Discussion will follow the screenings, which are open to the public. A $5 donation is requested.
