New movie invokes RAW

In Bright Axiom - Trailer from Spencer McCall on Vimeo.

Branka Tesla wrote to me to tell me about a new movie, In Bright Axiom, which she told me opens up with a Robert Anton Wilson quote: “You should view the world as a conspiracy run by a very closely-knit group of nearly omnipotent people, and you should think of those people as yourself and your friends.”

Alfred Korzbyski and William Burroughs also are quoted in the movie.

The description on the official website says, "Under a code of ABSOLUTE DISCRETION, guests are invited into the House of the Latitude, a place where truth and fiction are indistinguishable. This docu-fantasy follows participants through the dark mazes, to a place where a powerful spell is cast, and ultimately broken, as we witness the unforeseen consequences of a daring social experiment."

Branka tells me that the movie premiered at the Berkeley City Club June 19, within walking distance of where Wilson used to live. The official website mentions other screenings in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and Butte, Montana.

Here is the IMDB listing.

Thanks Branka!
