THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives.

Yes, I know, you are too busy. There is no time for watching a film. I thought the same thing, and at times even thought - "What the heck? Where is this going and why am I watching" As the movie moves along and it does so rapidly considering the amount of factual information, you see where it's going and why you can't let go. Most of those interviewed are authors I have read, I don't think they are crazy. If you know me you know I'm not one to follow the tune of the piper or follow nutty conspiracy theories. Take some time - put other things aside and watch. Thanks Cher for sending me this - I guess I knew much of this but not this cogent way.

"STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING, sit down, and watch this film! No REALLY, I mean it. This is one of the most IMPORTANT films I’ve seen…Thrive brings together the New Energy and Occupy movements in a coherent, well constructed synergy that EVERYONE should see NOW!"
-Mark Heley, Blogger

"THRIVE is more than a documentary relevant to the times. It is more than a well-researched and alarming insight into who really controls how the world works. It is a recipe and blueprint for how we can, each and every one of us, thrive in the way that the rest of nature does – easily, naturally and with expansive grace. For this last point alone, it is more than worth the time to see."
-Odyssey Magazine

"MUST, MUST SEE! This film is a considered, thoroughly researched, even-handed look at the state of the world in all of it shame and glory."


".... Literally my favorite film of all time and has not only put wind in the sails of my life in general; but made me feel less alone and more vibrant in who I am specifically and what I specifically came here to do and be."


"I lived in the world of "institutional investment banking" working with the 13th largest firm in the US for almost a decade (research department and national research conference coordinator) in the 80s and I can assure you that the film is accurate. Technologies in so many fields, including medical cures that I personally viewed were, and still are, buried. Yes, it is time to wake up, but more importantly, it is time to support the movement and get involved. The site has it all and I have signed up."


"I watched the movie yesterday and it was so amazing I had to watch it again today!!"


"This is a wonderful movie! There is a lot of information covered (and uncovered) that every person needs to be aware of in order to create change in this world. I am so happy to see and hear this finally come out. It is explained in a clear and understandable way. I highly recommend it!"


"In these times of depression and chaos, we need hope. This video is a comprehensive review on world events that affect all of us. What I like about it is that it also gives solutions. Highly recommended..."

I've watched it last week. Last 5 or 10 minutes of this film sounded like a sell proposal which I didn't appreciate. Othervise, The Thrive is a serious and consistent film with beautiful scenes and animations. Author, Foster Gamble, spent 10 years in making it and it shows. I do recommend watching. There are many less worthy ways to spend 2 hours.

Yoi're welcome, now joi the movement and get involved. There is a lot happening, or you can start something in your community. No one will do this for us, we have been thinking about government doing things for to long. This is for all of us to do, to work toward.

This movie may change the way you think about quite a few things. Most Care2ers are most likely already advocating the kind of actions Foster Gamble lists at the end of the movie, so that won't really be new info, but the way he pulls things together in the beginning & middle gives a very useful perspective on why things are the way they are in our world, and why we are having so darned much trouble changing things fir the better.
Definitely worth watching.

Yep, Bianca he takes what till now has been smatterings of movements for this, against that, then puts all of these into perspective. Why do banks and corporations have so much power? Why are governments seeming to act against the best interest of the people? GMOs, ownership of water rights, over promotion of dangerous prescriptions, failing education. Everything ties together and we can do something about all of this. Foster Gamble spent ten years of his life and his unique ability to reach out to experts to find answers, now he is working to give everyone a voice. The choice to be a part of that voice is now in our hands. We have the information and the resources, what will we do?

This film is the best of it's kind I have ever seen! I hope every one take the 2 hours to watch it because we'd do that for the Hunger Games and such. Thrive could help us survive the year and get us into the next many years! " What the "bleep" do we know" is another film you should all be seeing. Both help us figure out what the cosmic world is about and helps us get a more complete view of the future!!

Thanks for posting, Kit. I've been aware of "Thrive" for awhile, but haven't set aside the 2 hrs. yet. Going to to watch the Assange Interviews later, though, and will definitely set aside time to watch after that. I've read many wonderful things about this movie. Wondering if it's only available online, or if there are plans to show it on big screens....maybe at some film fests around the country?

Thanks Kit. I very much like the first half of it, I'm not sure about the second part. It's very American, not as global as I expected . Much of it is easier said than done, many of us don't have neither the discipline nor the capability to act accordingly to the second half of the film. For the rest = great ideas, I'm sure not everybody is "retarded", that gives me hope. Lets do it step by step; BE THE CHANGE !!

Thank you Kit and all of you who have watched Thrive. We need to wake up as a Global People who are fighting the same Criminals that are keeping us all down. Occupy is world-wide and this movie could not have come at a better time to explain the details of what the movement is about. "We the People" used to be a Constitutional reference for me but now it means even more as "We the (Earth) People" are a global movement.
