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.
