Film Screening & Talk
Friday, November 30, 6:30 p.m.
Join us for a special screening of the documentary film “What Would Jesus Buy?” followed by a discussion with the Director Rob VanAlkemade and Editor Katrina VanAlkemade. The film focuses on Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse (the end of humankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt). The New York Times calls it “fast and funny” and the Toronto Star says, “think of it as a type of comedic, anti-consumerist, cinematic Christmas card, and you begin to get the vibe of this outlandish yet unexpectedly poignant film.” Following the screening, Rob and Katrina will talk about the making of the film and its social and cultural impact.
This is a fundraiser to benefit youth Religious Education.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Bring the family!
This film is rated PG and is appropriate for all ages.
