Multidimensional Book & Movie Exploration: The Matrix Trilogy
December 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CSTFree
In anticipation of the release of The Matrix Resurrections, we dive into what the first three Matrix movies say about illusion and reality.
About this event
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.
Join us on Wednesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. CST to recap the first three movies to prepare for the release of The Matrix Resurrections on December 22. The Multidimensional Book and Movie Exploration on January 12 will dive into the philosophical meaning of the newest movie.
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.
