The Story Of Stuff

Movies That Matter Presents


The Story of Stuff will be screened on Tuesday, January 18 at 4:30 pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County in Ephraim.

Consumerism is the theme of The Story of Stuff. This documentary is about the lifecycle of material goods. It presents a critical view of the consumerist American society and purports to expose the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues.  Its message calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. Stark and compelling statistics are used by filmmaker Annie Leonard to drive home the dire nature of global consumption.

This film is being used in elementary schools, arts programs, and economics classes as well as places of worship and corporate sustainability trainings. It has been viewed by over 12 million people in 228 countries.

Movies That Matter are presented each month by the Social Responsibility Committee of the UU Fellowship. This series of thought-provoking films is free and open to the public with screenings on the third Tuesday each month.  A discussion and optional dinner follow each screening. The new starting time is 4:30 PM through the winter months. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim.
