Growth Busters was screened recently at Strathalbyn by the Strathalbyn Community Group. Jo Lewis, facilitator of the Group writes “We had an amazing crowd – people I’d never met before. Most of them left as soon as the film finished but a couple stayed and chatted and indicated that they were interested in our group’s activities.”
GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth looks into the psychology of denial and crowd behavior. It explores our obsession with urban and economic growth, and our reluctance to address overpopulation issues head-on. This documentary holds up a mirror, encouraging us to examine the beliefs and behaviors we must leave behind – and the values we need to embrace – so our children can survive and thrive.
