Movie Night: "Where to Invade Next"

  • When: Tuesday, February 16, 2016 @ 7:00 pm
  • AMC Elmwood Palace 20, 1200 Elmwood Park Blvd., Harahan, LA view map

Filmmaker Michael Moore visits various countries to examine how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues.

From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs. Through his travels, we discover just how different America is from the rest of the world.

Sounds like the kind of movie a secular humanist should see, right?

Jesus & Mo


This in the comic I made especially for the 2nd collection of Danish J&Ms, Jesus og Mo II, which was published in September, ten years after the Jyllands-Posten newspaper printed the famous twelve Motoons.

Vive la France.
