Parksville’s Shift in Action group is screening the film Thrive – what on Earth will it take?

The 2011 documentary is described on it’s website as “an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s really going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.”

“This is a movie I believe everyone needs to see,” said Eva Grodt, founder of the Shift group hosting the screening. “We know money rules the world, this movie helps you see how it is done.”

The film combines breakthroughs in science with recent activism and interviews to offer possible solutions “for reclaiming our lives and our future.”

The huge number of interview subjects include current notables like Deepak Chopra and archive footage of figures like Einstein, Buckminster Fuller and Martin Luther King Jr.
