Encircle Films! -The Millennials Dream-

December 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re hearing a lot about the future that Millennials (ages 18-34) will be creating — a future that places a different emphasis on education, jobs, and even marriage and kids than their parents’ generation. What are the cultural values that inform millennials as they begin to create a world that reflects those values? And what is the City of Eugene doing to plan for a community that will reflect these values and attract the new economy?
Please join us for THE MILLENNIAL DREAM on Thursday, December 7 at 6pm at the Bijou Arts Cinema, on 13th Avenue.

The American Dream is the cultural motif that has inspired North America for the last century. Work hard, save, sacrifice and you will get ahead. America offers the freedom of upward mobility. But over the last decade the American Dream has been called into question. For many, it no longer seems to be working. THE MILLENNIAL DREAM is a feature length documentary that explores the values that may replace the cultural motif known as The American Dream.

As the Millennial generation becomes the most significant portion of the work force what will change about what we want from our jobs, what education will look like, what kinds of companies will succeed in the new economy and what kinds of living communities will be desired? And what can cities and regions do to attract the new economy? Interviews with experts such as Seth Godin and the personal reflections of young workers will stir debate and dialogue around what might emerge as the Millennial Dream.

We have an exciting lineup of folks for the Q&A discussion after the film:
Greg Hemmings, filmmaker (via Skype)
Emily Semple, Eugene City Council
Terri Harding, Envision Eugene
PLUS Millennials who will share their beliefs and values
