The Mosquito Coast Screening + Discussion
THURSDAY, MAY 9TH, 7PM
Fed up with an America he sees as destroyed by strip malls, globalism, and entitlement, inventor Allie Fox moves his family to the jungles of Central America to rebuild civilization according to his ideals. But in the process, will he just recreate all the problems he was trying to escape? Helen Mirren, André Gregory, and a young River Phoenix co-star; Peter Weir directs. Join The Technoskeptic and the Brattle Theatre for a screening of the film followed by a discussion about technology, colonialism, and hubris. The panel will include Salem State professor Aviva Chomsky, MIT’s Deborah Fitzgerald, and The Technoskeptic‘s Mo Lotman.
