Event description

Description

To kick off the Food Co-op's new 'Meaningful Movies' initiative, we will be hosting a free screening of Right Between Your Ears - a new international award-winning documentary that crosses the boundaries between belief, psychology and neuroscience to examine how we can become convinced we're right, even when we're wrong.

Through the eyes of a group of people convinced that they knew the date for the end of the world, Right Between Your Ears explores how people believe, how we turn beliefs into certainties, and how we mistake them for the truth. By asking these questions, we come to understand not only the psychology of doomsday thinkers, but also insight into the polarised political debates and conflicts of today.

Right Between Your Ears has received a number of awards, including winner of best documentary at Lift-Off Sydney 2017, official selection for Lift-Off London 2017 and an official nominee for the 2017 Lift-Off Season Awards.

The screening will begin at the Food-Coop at 7:30pm on the 9th February, with entry from 7pm. Tea and Sweets will be available, and are covered by a gold coin donation at the door.

"An engaging, kind and sober film about a hugely important topic: what happens when people who are certain of something realize they are wrong."
Jon Ronson - author

"A fun and warm-hearted look at a community of doomsayers as they face the day of jugdment, it ends up saying a great deal about how we all think."
Louis Theroux - documentary filmmaker
