"The Matrix"

The Matrix is a 1999 American-Australian science fiction action film written and directed by The Wachowskis, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano. It depicts a dystopian future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality called "the Matrix", created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies' heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. Computer programmer "Neo" learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the "dream world".

How does a movie about computer hacking and malevolent computers fit with mindfulness? Join us to find out! Moderated by our teachers and special guests, the CFM Movie Night series explores the deeper themes and subject matter of the films, which have been chosen for their connections to mindfulness, meditation, and related topics.
