Ghetto Physics (the movie)

“It’s all about waking up and choosing your dream with an awareness of the game coming at you.”

We just saw the trailer for this film and are intrigued by the combination of being rooted in practical reality (the game coming at you) but with a vision for what’s possible (waking up and choosing your dream).

View the trailer here:

Ghetto Physics takes its name from metaphysics, which looks at the connection between mind and matter and explores how a person can play a major part in creating their own reality. In this case, the setting goes from the streets to the boardroom, examining the “game” that dominates our world view — the epic battle for power that impacts everything.

The film is by  E. Raymond Brown and William H. Arntz, the producer and director of “What the BLEEP“, and features entertainers and thinkers from TV legend Norman Lear to Byron Katie (teacher of “the Work”) to John Perkins (author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man) and Dr. Cornel West in the commentary.

From the Ghetto Physics press release:

INTRODUCTION

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” is a familiar slogan from the celebrated 1978 film classic, Network.

But we’re seeing and hearing it more often now on radio and television – both in commercials and in the attitude of millions of Americans, who are feeling angry, frustrated, fearful and impotent.

What is going on here? Why is our society falling apart? Why are so many Americans’ lives in trouble? And what can we do about it?

GHETTOPHYSICS reveals the truth about the timeless game of power that has occupied the world forever. But the game’s utility and effectiveness have reached their limits, and a new world-game is needed.
