Preview Screening: Changing of the Gods
I want to personally invite you to a one-time-only private screening of two episodes-in-progress from my forthcoming dynamic 10-part film series, “Changing of the Gods: Planetary and Human Revolutions.” The film screening will take place on Friday, Oct 19 at 7:00 in the Showcase Theater as part of the Bioneers Conference. Because we will be doing one final edit, your feedback will be invaluable to us. The Bioneers audience is famous for being among the sophisticated and smart in the world! The series features numerous Bioneers.
“Changing of the Gods” uses the framework of archetypal astrology to explore the arc of revolutionary cycles across history and how they correlate with planetary alignments. History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does seem to rhyme.
The series unfolds as a provocative mystery story, exploring today’s earthshaking global upheavals by focusing on the current “world transit” of Uranus and Pluto (2007-2020). Each time this planetary configuration recurs, a zeitgeist of paradigm-shifting revolutions, disruptions, breakdowns, and breakthroughs manifest in the collective psyche and behavior on titanic scales.
What is the revolution today? What is the transformation? Inspired by the book “Cosmos and Psyche” by acclaimed scholar Richard Tarnas, and featuring comedian John Cleese, we explore the current arenas of human activity where these revolutions and transformations consistently arise: political revolutions, women’s rights, Black liberation and civil rights movements, technological innovations, scientific paradigm shifts, and cultural revolutions involving “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll.”
“Changing of the Gods” illuminates a new emergent understanding of the cosmos and our place in it. If these planetary alignments coincide with archetypally predictable shifts in human affairs, it may suggest that we live in a cosmos pervaded with consciousness and saturated with meaning.
We’ll screen two episodes-in-progress: the opening, “World Transits,” which sets up the mysterious premise of the correlation between planetary movements and entire historical and cultural epochs; and Women’s Rights Movements, which looks at the trajectory of social movements for women’s rights and feminism across history, and climaxes in this transformational #metoo moment.
I will introduce the episodes, and we’ll invite you to fill out an evaluation form, if you’re up for that. I hope to see you there!
