On Friday, November 11th at 7 p.m. at the MACC the Maui Film Festival will present THRIVE, an unconventional documentary grappling with questions about the current state of our world and whether humans can continue to thrive as we witness marked environmental changes which compromise our species’ well being.

As well as pointing out several things that are wrong with the world and the theories behind them, the documentary also offers solutions which could “revolutionize” our methods of dealing with obstacles in future.

The makers of THRIVE  say it blends “exciting” “scientific” breakthroughs and evidence with the opinions of “brilliant minds” to create a film which “commands consciousness” from a global audience. Others might describe it as a series of crackpot theories and pseudo-science.


Some of the topics addressed in the film are extra-terrestrial life, the concept of free energy, medical systems, banking systems, and the hold that large corporations have on much of the human population’s resources.


THRIVE claims it is designed to empower viewers to take initiative in re-claiming human rights and capability to reverse negative traits in our development.

Interviewees in the film include Duane Elgin, Nassim Haramein, Steven Greer, Jack Kasher, Daniel Sheehan, Adam Trombly, Brian O’Leary, Vandana Shiva, John Gatto, John Robbins, Deepak Chopra, David Icke, Catherine Austin Fitts, G. Edward Griffin, Bill Still, John Perkins, Paul Hawken, Aqeela Sherrills, Evon Peter, Angel Kyodo Williams, Elisabet Sahtouris, Amy Goodman, and Barbara Marx Hubbard.

Tickets for THRIVE can be purchased for $20 at the MACC Box Office or online at
