The filmnight this month has a money and business theme. If you've ever wondered where all the money goes, or if there don't seem to be enough hours in the day to earn it, spend it, and pay all the bills, there might be some vital information for you in one or more of the three films. As usual, there'll be two short films starting at 7.30 pm (don't be late), followed by a 20 minute tea and chat break before the main feature starts. And of course, there's more tea and chat afterwards for those who want to mingle.

July, 7.30 - 9.30 pm at Communicare, Quennevais Rd, St
Brelade. Paul Grignon's film presents an attractive picture of
how money could work in the future. It is full of surprising
specifics for creating a nurturing economy using technologies
that exist right now. It demonstrates in simple terms why our
primitive concept of money as a "single uniform commodity" is
a root cause of dysfunction and injustice. The film
illustrates in extensive and entertaining detail how a
fundamental change how a fundamental change in our long-held
concept of money, paired with recent breakthroughs in
technology, opens the door to a liberated, self-balancing
global "money" backed by real value and open to all. Preceded
by Heart in Business and What the Economic Crisis
Really Means, two short films with different but similar
takes on the same subject. Free teas and coffees. All welcome.
