Documentary Film Group will be trying another format this year.  We will be gathering for dinner at Bean and Barrel to discuss a documentary film each month.  Check out the menu at http://www.beanandbarrel.com

The documentaries are all available on Netflix unless noted otherwise and participants should watch the documentary selection before coming to the meeting where we will discuss the film over dinner.


The September film is:

 

            MINIMALISM: A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE IMPORTANT THINGS


Image result    
Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus help over 20 million people live meaningful lives with less through their website, books, podcast, and documentary. The Minimalists have been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Forbes, TIME, ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, CBC, and NPR.

How might your life be better with less? Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things (2015), by Matt D'Avella, examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life -- families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker -- all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.  This film is available on Netflix streaming and YouTube.  

 

If you would like to nominate a documentary film for discussion, please send your suggestions to normagindes@gmail.com.  A list of films will be circulated at the first meeting and participants will vote to select films through the end of the year.
