Ugh, Holiday season is close at hand...

There used to be one way to get through the maniacal rash consumerism of the holiday season...Santacon. Now we may have another visual aid, no its not Fred Claus (possibly the worst Holiday movie ever)

Its, "what would Jesus buy", the new documentary by filmmaker Rob Van Alkemade and produced by Morgan Spurlock.

Its about Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping choir as they travel the country enlighting people of the empending "shopocalypse!"
See the trailer here.

The movie talks about the environmental devastation from Holiday Waste. Did you know…

• From Thanksgiving to New Years Day, household waste increases by more than 25%.

• The amount of cards sold during the holiday season requires the harvesting of nearly 300,000 trees.

• 38,000 miles of ribbon is thrown out each year, enough to tie a bow around the Earth.

This Friday, the film opens in NYC at Cinema Village.
