FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MEANINGFUL MOVIES presents the film:
FILM: “NET NEUTRALITY, MEDIA CONSOLIDATION AND YOU: BARBERSHOP PUNK”
(84 min, Georgia Sugimura Archer, Kristin Armfield, 2011)
Is your “ISP” controlling the vertical, the horizontal, the data speeds, and the channel you’ll be on?
In a privatized American Internet, is big business “Big Brother” or does the" free market"  protect and serve the needs of the average citizen with its invisible hand? Will the FCC side with corporations or with the citizens it is supposed to serve?  With the simple act of swapping files, barbershop quartet baritone Robb Topolski finds himself at ground zero of a landmark case whose outcome will affect the rights of every American citizen.
Following one man’s personal quest to defend what he believes to be his inalienable rights, BARBERSHOP PUNK examines the critical issues surrounding the future of the American Internet and what it takes to challenge the status quo and corporate America.

Will we have the wisdom to survive?

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MEANINGFUL MOVIES presents the film:
FILM: “INEQUALITY FOR ALL”
(89 min, Jacob Kornbluth, 2013)
“We make the rules of the economy – and we have the power to change those rules." – Robert Reich
A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich—professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member—as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves.
Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this INCONVENIENT TRUTH for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MEANINGFUL MOVIES presents the film:
FILM: “DIVE!” - LIVING OFF AMERICA'S WASTE
(45 min, Jeremy Seifert, 2010)

“Jeremy Seifert is my new Michael Pollan, Morgan Spurlock and Chef Ann Cooper in that he brings to our attention - for lack of a better term, an inconvenient truth: We waste too much food in this country…” -Flavorista 
Inspired by a curiosity about our country's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles  of Los Angeles' supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an inspiring 
documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action.
