Predictions abound for where our country and planet are headed. From fiery prophecies to statistical likelihoods, a myriad of opinions proliferate on the direction we are taking, yet the conclusions are invariably grim. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Imagine Atlanta Film Series presents documentaries that inform, entertain, and educate about our world. Beginning Tuesday June 19, the series will kickoff with Surviving Progress, a film that explores how our own intelligence may be contrary to our survival as a species. Tracing development over the course of human history, Surviving Progress discusses some of the limitations of human intelligence, as well as some of the potential solutions to increased scarcity on this planet, through interviews with Stephen Hawking, Jane Goodall, Margaret Atwood, and other notable thinkers, writers, and persons of influence.

The series will continue every two to four weeks, with topics ranging from public housing to dumpster diving. ¬†Currently the other scheduled films are Switch, a documentary about all things related to energy, and In Organic We Trust, an exploration of what ‘organic’ really means.

The films will be screened at the Midtown Arts Cinema, but there are tickets for only 120 people, so get them in advance.

Hope to see you there.
