Czech Dream [DELAYED]
Sorry for the late notice, folks, but we're going to postpone our showing of "Czech Dream" due to the snow delay and transportation issues. Our film series will resume next week with Reverend Billy and the Church of Life After Shopping! We'll try to work "Czech Dream" into the line-up for the New Year. Stay tuned for a list of films coming up in January!
a documentary about Shopping!
The commodity fetish is hilariously critiqued in this excellent documentary by two young Czech film students who make up a new box store named "Czech Dream." With the help of a public relations firm, they create a massive ad campaign to lure the public in. When the crowd arrives for the grand opening, they discover something is not right with the new store.
a documentary about Shopping! The new Czech Dream resembles the American one, a dream of 2 chickens in every pot and a superstore in every suburb glutted with discounted goods. Shopping is the the new religion in the New World Order. Produced by Morten Spurlock of "Supersize Me" and "30 Days". See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0402906/ for more on the film.
