Raoul Martinez, writer, artist, and award-winning filmmaker, will share the findings from his ground-breaking first book Creating Freedom. The ideal of freedom is at the heart of our political and economic system. It is foundational to our sense of justice, our way of life, our conception of what it is to be human. But are we free in the way that we think we are? Raoul Martinez will bring together a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, facts and arguments to dismantle sacred myths central to our society – myths about free will, free markets, free media and free elections.
He will be interviewed by his sister Francesca, following a screening of The Lottery Of Birth – nominated for Best Documentary at the Raindance Film Festival and winner of the Spirit Award at the Artivist Festival, it is the bestselling independent documentary on iTunes in several countries and, for over four months, was the most watched documentary on Amazon Prime in the United States.
