What Would Jesus Buy? Official Website | Trailer

From producer Morgan Spurlock (SUPERSIZE ME) and director Rob Van Alkemade comes this year’s must-see film. Part agitprop theater and part civil disobedience, WHAT WOULD JESUS BUY? is “a wickedly effective indictment of America’s consumer compulsion, our mindless shopping and the multinational corporations controlling it all” that intriguingly chronicles Reverend Billy and his Church of Stop Shopping’s attempts to combat consumerism, one person at a time (Chicago Tribune). Going around the country with a gospel choir of citizens on a mission to open people’s eyes to what they believe is a wasteland of consumerism without meaning, Reverend Billy takes aim at some of America’s biggest corporations.

“Much like Spurlock’s hit ‘Super Size Me,’ this production is slick, well-paced, and tremendously entertaining.” – Village Voice
