How Consumer Capitalism Impacts our Economy, Environment and Culture

dvd_jacket_177Conscientious Projector examines the history and effects of consumer capitalism on American life, economy and the environment with a screening of Consumerism & the Limits to Imagination on Thursday, November 12, 7:00 p.m. at Armory Center for the Arts. The Media Education Foundation production is based on the latest critically acclaimed book by media scholar Justin Lewis, who delivers a compelling illustrated case that unlimited economic growth has become unsustainable and no longer meets its longstanding promise of enhancing quality of life here and around the world.

A community discussion follows the film. The Armory is located at 145 N. Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free and the facility is accessible to disabled persons.
