2012: Time for Change presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows my quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink. The film features Sting, Ellen Page, David Lynch, Gilberto Gil, and many other artists and visionaries.
The film opens in New York this weekend. Apologies if you don’t live in the area – we will soon offer video on demand and DVDs for sale. You can also work with us to organize a screening where you live.
I apologize for this promotional outburst – the film is a true labor of love, intended to inspire people with new ideas and visions. If you would like to help spread the word, please send this info out to your friends and networks.
I believe it is really important that New Yorkers go and see this film and consider the ideas in it. We are seeking to compete in NYC without the level of marketing budget of Hollywood films. We are therefore counting on our extended community to recognize the importance of supporting a film that offers a counterculture message, presents clear solutions for contemporary crises, explores shamanism and ecological design, promotes consciousness, etc. This weekend is critical for us, as we need a strong attendance to get the film extended.
If you can send out an email to your friends, networks, and greater community today or tomorrow about our film this weekend, that would be extremely helpful. If you can bring friends with you to the film over the weekend, that would be most amazing. I will be there after the evening screenings and at other times.
It opens Friday at the AMC Loews Village 7 at 66 3rd Avenue (11th St). We will be having panels and Q & As with the filmmakers, subjects of the film, and other co-conspirators after the evening screenings. Check out our Facebook page for full info.
