While eccentric conservationist Yoko Ono once described the Georgia Guidestones as “a stirring call to rational thinking,” many speculate that the monument points to a conspiracy reaching far beyond Northeast Georgia. In The Georgia Guidestones Movie, filmmaker Michael Reser explores every angle of Georgia’s own strange Stonehenge—a mysterious monument in nearby Elberton, GA, the granite capitol of the world. Only 34 years old and commissioned under a pseudonym, the Guidestones consist of six granite slabs engraved with 10 guidelines in 10 different languages, all describing an “Age of Reason” for mankind. Narrated by Elbert County native Paul Floyd and scored by local musician Kyle Dawkins, the film comes through as a balanced look at the puzzling monument. Admission is free and the film will begin at 2 p.m.
