GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth
54 minutes
Dave Gardner

Tuesday, August 26
7:30pm

Drexel Theatre
2254 East Main Street
Bexley, Ohio 43209

GrowthBusters is a documentary film that asks the most critical question of our time: How do we become a sustainable civilization? Ready for a paradigm shift? Don’t miss this film! One man (the filmmaker and political office challenger) takes on city hall, Wall Street and The Pope as he questions society’s most fundamental beliefs about prosperity. The film takes a unique approach among modern environmental documentaries: Rather than dispensing facts about climate change; peak energy, food and water; and bio-diversity loss, it examines the cultural barriers that prevent us from acting rationally. It asks why population conversations are so difficult to have, and why a roaring economy is more important to us than a survivable planet.

A question-and-answer discussion will follow the film.

Admission is free, donations are encouraged.

Undeterred by the power of the church, corrupt politics, and a male-dominated culture where they’ve even been threatened with lynching, Evelyn and Ester, two indigenous Guatemalans, courageously travel the mountains and valleys of their native country on a quest to provide family planning education and access to birth control methods to women. It is a fight for reproductive rights and freedom in a country with the highest fertility rate in Latin America, staggering poverty, and a population in which 1 out of every 2 children under age 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition (the fourth highest rate in the world).

Admission is FREE.

Ade and Femi are expatriate Nigerian brothers. Ade is a successful banker in London, while Femi, once a political dissident in his home country, has had to escape to South Africa, live in refugee tenements and work menial jobs. The brothers have not only been physically estranged, their relationship is riddled with unspoken betrayal, guilt and scorn, which they have carried since the early days of their youth. During a short visit to Johannesburg, Ade discovers that his brother has been missing for a week. He sets out to investigate Femi’s mysterious disappearance, reconstructing the pieces of his everyday life and the cruel hardships he endured just to survive. A riot erupts while Ade is visiting Femi’s former boss in one of the townships. Ade is forced to take shelter with the employer. The mounting violence outside seeps into their exchanges and, eventually, prompts an explosion of revelation.

Admission is FREE.
