The documentary follows Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping gospel choir on a cross-country tour. Through retail interventions at the Mall of America, corporate exorcisms at WalMart, and some good oldfashioned preaching, Reverend Billy (actor Bill Talen) reminds us that we have lost the true meaning of Christmas. Simply Living hosts this screening at the start of holiday shopping to connect the dots between our addiction to shopping and credit card debt and the environmental consequences of the consumer culture. Q&A discussion will follow the film.
