Screening of ‘What Would Jesus Buy’ on Dec. 1
WHAT: Movie screening WHEN: Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 67 S. Randolph St., Poughkeepsie DETAILS: The Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present a showing of the movie “What Would Jesus Buy.” The film focuses on the issues of the commercialization of Christmas, materialism, overconsumption and globalization, as seen through the prism of activist and performance artist “Reverend Billy” and his troupe of activists, a church choir called “The Church of Stop Shopping” that sings antishopping and anti-corporate songs. The film follows Rev. Billy and his choir as they take a cross-country trip in the month prior to Christmas 2005, spreading their message against patronizing the retail outlets of several large corporate chains. It manages to be highly entertaining and uproariously funny, even as it is educational and thoughtprovoking. A donation of $5 is sugg4ested. Refreshments will be served.
