Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth (Film)

Growthbusters: Hooked on Growth is a film by the visionary filmmaker Dave Gardner that is currently in production. The film is questioning the growth imperative that lies at the heart of modern economic systems – the film’s trailer can be viewed here.

The Growthbusters team is currently on a fundraising campaign to pay for the final phase of production, and their current project is a soundtrack album to the film. All the songs (including one by Pete Seeger) are thoughtfully related to the many great social, environmental, economic, and political issues that we are facing today as a human community.

Proceeds from the sale of this album will help fund completion of the film. Every artist represented has contributed his/her work to this fundraiser on a non-profit basis.

    This is what happens when one tries to fill the void wiihtn with stuff. It is the yearning for the spiritual, the yearning for the connection to the divine that prompts us towards wholeness. And yes, that means following your heart towards the things that fulfill you rather than listening to mom and dad and doing the smart thing (the thing that brings with it the ability to buy lots of toys). Success isn’t necessarily what gives you the biggest bank account though it may be. It’s about growing into your true self, honoring the person you were meant to be, and honoring that in others as well.
