Description:
What would you do if your income were taken care of? Just a few years ago, an unconditional basic income was considered a pipe dream. Today, this utopia is more imaginable than ever before—intense discussions are taking place in all political and scientific camps. Free Lunch Society provides background information about this idea and searches for explanations, possibilities and experiences regarding its implementation.

Biography:
Christian Tod is an accomplished economist, currently working on his dissertation thesis about unconditional basic income. His debut film, Fatsy–The Last Cowboy of Austria received an honorable mention at Crossing Europe Film Festival Linz. Christian Tod‘s first feature length documentary Es muss was geben was the opening movie at Crossing Europe‘s, chosen for the official election at Filmfest München and got theatrically released nationwide.
