An examination of the commercialization of Christmas in America while following Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir 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 film also delves into issues such as the role sweatshops play in America's mass consumerism and Big-Box Culture. From the humble beginnings of preaching at his portable pulpit on New York City subways, to having a congregation of thousands - Bill Talen (aka Rev. Billy) has become the leader of not just a church, but a national movement. Written by

A doc everyone should see and one that no corporation wants to you think about
Really don't understand the low ratings of this doc... I saw this several years ago and was touched by its creative message, the enlightenment to our insane consumer society, and if you don't think you are just a pawn of the oppressor then you ARE! Stop buying so much and invest in relationships and values! US has clearly lost it way and this doc points out they hypocrisy in modern consumerist America. Here are some more great docs for those who care: 1) Consuming Kids 2) Affluenza 3) Advertising and the end of the world 4) The Corporation 5) What a way to go: Life at the End of Empire
If you watch these you may be able to turn the tide on our social, moral, and environmental destruction... What would Jesus Buy? fits right in with them ... "We must become the change we want to see." Gandhi
