'Sunday Nights in at the Acorn'

Every Sunday we offer you something different

Film and Debate : "The Economics of Happiness"
A film evening with a twist. Watch a film and then debate its making, subject matter, political stance, potency, bias…. and anything else that is appropriate.



"Lonely people have never been happy people. And globalization is creating a very lonely planet.”

A word we are "programmed" to hate. And yet we all subscribe to it. Or do we? And do we have a choice?

The Economics of Happiness, an incisive documentary that links today’s global crises (climate change, terrorism, the financial crash) with personal malaise (rising levels of depression and the pervasive emptiness of consumer society).


The cause?
The macroeconomic structure of globalization, a massive conglomerate of megabanks, multinational corporations, and international financial institutions, all constantly expanding in a deregulated environment that takes profit, and never people, as theraison d’être of all things.

The cure?
Localisation. A return to community, where people can forge connections with neighbors instead of advertising models, and buy food from a nearby farmer instead of the industrial agricultural machine. It is the economic and social bond among fellow citizens, and their very interdependence, insists economic analyst Helena Norberg-Hodge, that allows them to be truly happy.

Yes? or No?

What does make us happy?

Do you remember the good old days where everyone shared?

What went wrong?

Room for debate?

Join us on Sunday 2nd October @ 7.00pm for a screening and lively debate.

And the Bar will be open...."
