Movie Night: The Secret of Oz


Come join us for this compelling documentary which uses the metaphor of The Wizard of Oz to explain the history of the monetary system, how it has gotten us into our current economic malaise, and how we can get out of it. The movie was created by Bill Still, a documentary film maker that has been exploring monetary issues in movies since 1996.

The movie is 1:50 long, we will have a short break in the middle, and our always engaging discussion will follow!


The Secret of Oz won the Silver Sierra award at the Yosemite Film Festival and the Award of Merit at the Accolade Competition La Jolla, California.

The yellow brick, the emerald city of Oz, even Dorothy’s silver slippers (changed to ruby slippers for the movie version) were powerful symbols of author L. Frank Baum’s belief that the people – not the big banks -- should control the quantity of a nation’s money. The bottom line: No More National Debt. All our money is created out of debt. But nations don't have to borrow money from banks. Sovereign nations can create their own money -- debt free -- just as Abraham Lincoln did to win the Civil War. This is the secret that’s been hidden from us for over 100 years.


Time will be allotted for Q&A, discussion and announcements.

Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
