About this event
This new addition to The Matrix family of movies is sure to be a mind-bending film that begs for conversation! The movie will be released in theaters and on HBOmax on December 22, 2021.
Watch The Matrix Resurrections and then bring your questions, aha-moments and favorite scenes to the free Multidimensional Book & Movie Exploration on January 12. We’ll be diving into the Matrix philosophy and looking at the rich metaphysical meaning that builds upon the other Matrix movies.
The Matrix, released in 1999, was groundbreaking on a number of levels. In addition to introducing a radical new type of cinematography, this dystopian science fiction film dove deep into philosophical ideas about the nature of reality. Metaphysical and spiritual circles rallied around the many ways the movie depicted illusion, reality, and the nature of human existence. The Matrix was followed by The Matrix Reloaded in May 2003 and The Matrix Revolutions in November 2003.
The monthly Multidimensional Book and Movie Explorations are free, and hosted by Rebecca Whitecotton, author of Pull Your Self Together: A True Story of Alternate Realities, Spiritual Healing and Dimensional Wholeness. Learn more at rebeccawhitecotton.com.
