CONSUME THIS MOVIE
Presented by Grant Williams
from Transition East Bay

This evening begins with a potluck supper at 6:30 pm. Bring your favorite food!

Americans are surely too materialistic to fit into the Earth's balanced ecology. Are we willfully trashing the planetary ecology in order to serve the egos, fancies, and vanities of American dreamers? And what, or who could be driving this powerful, seductive force? This eye-opening film examines our social injustice, the impact of peak oil and resource depletion, and our deep need to feel connected to each other through what we consume. It also examines the frenzied pace of fast-lane materialism that is beginning to burn us out. We Americans are just now beginning to yearn for a simpler life, but is it too late? Have we set in motion a runaway train that threatens to undermine the ecological, social, and spiritual cornerstones that make the pursuit of happiness possible in the first place?

Grant will facilitate a discussion after the film showing.

Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our organic, vegetarian refreshments
