What would you do if your income were taken care of? Globalization, automation, Donald Trump. The middle class is falling apart. Time for a complete rethink. FREE LUNCH SOCIETY provides background information about the idea of Universal Basic Income and searches for explanations, possibilities and experiences regarding its implementation.

Just a few years ago, an unconditional basic income was considered a pipe dream. Today, this idea is more imaginable than ever before, and intense discussions are taking place in all political and scientific camps. From Alaska’s oil fields to the Namibian steppes, FREE LUNCH SOCIETY takes us on a grand journey and shows us what the driverless car has to do with the ideas of a German billionaire and a Swiss referendum.

“Free Lunch Society' takes a highly topical and radical idea up for debate in a surprising and thought-provoking film, and gives the floor to some of the people who have the most thought-through opinions about it.” CPH:DOX

Right Now Film Festival returns to independent cinemas across the UK between the 21st - 27th of March with a programme of six feature-length documentaries. From the beginning of vital movements such as Black Lives Matter to the future of welfare and the UK’s very own Brexit, our films explore the motives and truths behind global systems and address unjust balances of power. These are stories that may not be typically covered by mainstream cinema, brought to screens across the country in order to reach and challenge audiences.
