Tuesday May 5, in Berkeley --- DVD World Premiere of

Visions of Utopia: part two
Intentional Communities: Today's Social Experiments

A Documentary by Geoph Kozeny (1950-2007)

shown with optional dinner beforehand and discussion afterwards with
Producer Laird Schaub and current and former members of some
communities featured in the video, along with friends of Geoph and
local community organizers.

Today many people are looking for ways to bring more community into
their lives. Ordinary people with extraordinary visions tell their
stories of living and working together to build a better world.

This two-part full-length color documentary, completed in February '09
after Geoph's death, was over a decade in the making. Part 2 offers an
inside look at 11 different intentional communities; see how they are
designed and hear community members tell their own stories.

Visions of Utopia highlights an urban retrofit cohousing neighborhood,
a rural farming cooperative, an income-sharing commune, limited-equity
cooperative, an EcoVillage, a non-residential community, a remote
permaculture enclave, and more. See The Farm Community, N Street
Cohousing (Davis, CA), Ganas, Sandhill Farm, Goodenough Community,
Catholic Worker House and more.

Producer Laird Schaub, Executive Secretary of Fellowship for
Intentional Community (FIC) will be on hand to answer questions about
the film and the movement.

Copies of Visions of Utopia, Communities magazine, the Communities
Directory, and other cohousing- and community-related books will be
