Join Everett Meaningful Movies as we show “Invisible Hand,” a “paradigm shifting” documentary about the creation of ‘Rights of Nature,’ the defining battle of our times where nature, democracy and capitalism face off in rural America.

“Man has lost his way but this film gives us hope. Communities on the front lines are winning, and the blueprint they are providing the rest of us is well documented in this film. Pay close attention. Don’t give up. Keep fighting. We cannot become a nation where communities that seek to protect themselves and their water are labeled unconstitutional. The small communities are leading those of us who have lost our way, back into our place in the ecosystem. May this film unite all defenders and inspire new ones. The time is now.”

From Executive Producer Mark Ruffalo comes “Invisible Hand,” the world’s first documentary film on the Rights of Nature Movement. A “paradigm shifting” story about the fate of capitalism and democracy where we find out “Who speaks for Nature?”
