You’re invited to the film premiere of THE VILLAGE OF LOVERS, a feature documentary exploring the radical research community of Tamera in Portugal.
Local filmmaker Ian MacKenzie will be in attendance to premiere the film and host a Q&A afterwards.
In the Oak-dotted countryside of Southern Portugal lies the Tamera Healing Biotope, one of Earth’s most radical social experiments in human futurism.
Tamera began in the “free love” utopian movements of the 1960s’ and 70’s, and soon realized that the necessary social change had to run deeper than reactions to the dominant system. Tamera realized that at the core, regenerating trust – especially in the most intimate areas of human life – was the missing key to long-standing cultural and political change.
Now, over 40 years later, in an era of rampant climate chaos, the wake of a global pandemic, and mounting political unrest – where humanity’s survival into the 22nd century becomes increasingly uncertain – Tamera’s research attempts to provide a regenerative model for a post-capitalist society, rooted into a blueprint for a trust-based life they call “The Sacred Matrix.”
Filmed over five years with unprecedented access, THE VILLAGE OF LOVERS holistically reveals Tamera’s perspective for the first time at this critical moment of human destiny.
