Pick of the Day: Surviving Progress

While the tools and technology that humanity has at its disposal have grown by leaps and bounds in the last few millenia, our physical and mental capabilities haven’t evolved much beyond our pre-historic phase. We’re still pretty much prisoners of our biology, driven by powerful urges tied to mating, territory, hierarchy and other traits. The damage this is doing to our well-being and our long-term chances of survival is the subject of this 2011 Canadian documentary that screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m.

Here’s the trailer.

  1. Thanks, Greg. The thing I like best about the RPL Film Theatre is that you can always get a ticket. Not like the Cathedral Village Arts Festival.

  2. Is the message that we’ved survived progress?
    Or is it that we’ved tolerated simulated progress ?
