Magic Lantern movie this month will focus on how to reshape the economy

You don't have to be a tree-hugger to get behind the idea of fixing what ails America.

One new effort, which purports to be a grass-roots effort to change the U.S. economy, is “Fixing the Future,” a series of sessions and events.

The idea stems from PBS TV show host David Brancaccio who has begun interviewing people on how to change our thinking about what needs to happen. His show, NOW, has featured a number of those guest interviews.

Spokane can get in on the act on July 19, during a showing at the Magic Lantern of the film  “Surviving the Future”  at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $5.

The idea is for the documentary to be shown across the country on the same evening in 100 communities.The press materials say that following the documentary, audiences can stick around for a video teleconference of a panel discussion that includes Brancaccio, Bill McKibben, Majora Carter and Mike Brady.

You can load up on more at the event Facebook page.
