SLO FILM FESTIVAL: APRIL 25-30 2024 ENCORE MAY 1-5

THE MATRIX (1999)

SPONSORED BY: Coastal Awakening & KVEC News Talk 920 AM 96.5 FM

Every year The Coastal Awakening—a loose collection of writers, workers, surfers, artists, students, and film buffs—sponsors a film series grouped around a single theme dear to the creative spirit of the residents of the Central Coast. Each film is introduced “live” by various scholars, film makers and experts. This year they are presenting films celebrating “Mindfulness and Contemplation.”

If you haven’t seen The Matrix (1999) directed by the Wachowskis and starring Keanu Reeves, here’s your chance to see what all the talk is about. And if you’ve already seen it, here’s your chance to reconsider what it means to take “the red or the blue pill.” A local Vendantist will introduce the film’s metaphysical dimensions and lead short discussions before and after the film.

More films in this series: GROUNDHOG DAY, A MAN ESCAPED
