Associate Producer Lynsey Jones is hosting a screening of “GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth.” The film, described by director Dave Gardner as a full-frontal assault on the “taboos, myths and greedy growth profiteers that keep us speeding toward a cliff,” features interviews with former World Bank economist Herman Daly, former presidential advisors Gus Speth and Robert Solow, and 350.org’s Bill McKibben.
The proceeds from the $10 tickets benefit Tugg.com and the nonprofit Citizen-Powered Media, which produced the film and hopes to make a sequel. The screening will happen only if a minimum number of tickets are sold. So, advance ticket sales are crucial. If the threshold is not met, admission prices will be refunded.
