GrowthBusters Film Premieres November 2 – Order Now

It’s been a long, hard climb, and I am pleased to report the GrowthBusters documentary is finished. It’s nearly killed me to complete the film prior to the sad population milestone of world population passing 7 billion this October 31. 16-hour work-days, occasional all-nighters, and 8-day weeks have been the norm for several months.

4paneldvddigipak-foamhubBut enough about my blood, sweat and tears. What you want to know is that the film can now be ordered. Community screenings can be scheduled. The world premiere is set for Washington DC on November 2. A Colorado premiere in my hometown (prominently featured in the film) is scheduled for November 9.

“This could be the most important film ever made.  It tackles the three lethal taboos that threaten our civilization, those against discussing overpopulation, overconsumption, and the nonsensical idea that economic growth itself is a net benefit even in rich countries and can and must continue forever.”

– Stanford biologist Paul Ehrlich
author of The Population Bomb (and many other very insightful books)

Paul Ehrlich’s comment after viewing the film is very gratifying. Could this film play an important role in turning our culture in a new, positive direction? I’m driven to try. My work is not finished. I will spend the next year getting this film seen and these issues discussed as widely as possible. But your work as a growthbuster is just beginning. The distribution plan for a film as controversial as this one – that questions our most universal beliefs and the fundamental underpinnings of our modern culture – depends on believers like you setting up screenings in your community.

Whether it’s an intimate house party or a screening in a big meeting hall, the events you organize take the place of traditional move-theatre distribution, which we do not expect for this film.

There are other ways you can use this film to help the world begin asking the right questions:

  1. Send copies to key columnists, journalists, talk-show hosts, etc.
  2. Send copies to policymakers – elected officials at national and local levels

Alternatively, you can invite your local journalists and policymakers to your screening, as we did in this fun video:

Thanks for the support that got us this far. I hope you’ll now accept the baton as I pass it to you. Your role in this is critical!
