The Shopocalypse, or What Would Jesus Buy?


Please note: I posted this at the Baltimore Green Examiner right here, but am also including this for readers of this blog. If you’re in the area, hope to see you there!

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, Baltimore’s Action! Film Series will be screening What Would Jesus Buy? on Tuesday, November 3rd at The Windup Space in Baltimore’s Station North Arts District, at 12 W. North Avenue. Doors open at 6:30, the film screens at 7:00pm, and a Q&A and shopping session will follow at approximately 8:30. This is one to tell your friends about!

What Would Jesus Buy?, produced by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), is a hilarious and energizing docu-comedy about over-consumption and the pending “Shopocalypse: the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt!” The film follows Reverend Billy and the Church of the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse. Check out the trailer.

Following the film, representatives from Green America, Ten Thousand Villages, Three Stone Steps and other green and fair trade businesses and organizations will be on hand to discuss responsible consumption and offer you excellent gift options for the season.

So, join us for an evening of film, discussion, drinking, laughter, and shopping!

The Shopocalypse is upon us … Who will be $aved?
