What Would Jesus Buy?
Documentary / English
Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir are here to save our souls from overspending.
Christmas is coming and Reverend Billy and his Choir board a bus on a long journey to tell the people to 'Stop Shopping'. From the advertising stench of Times Square through the heartland's shopping malls (evading security guards at every turn) to the commercial chaos of Disneyland they are telling us to fight the urge to spend. We visit local shopkeepers who cannot compete with the large retailers and guilty parents queuing for the latest games console for their kids. Rev Billy and his choir do seem like a comedy act, but they are bringing a very serious message to the fore about our changing lust for consumerism. Stop the Shopocalypse. DD
