Dietmar Post's Reverend Billy & the Church of Stop Shopping focuses on Reverend Billy (NYC performance artist Bill Talens) and his devout group of disciples as they crusade against the synthetic and corruptive aspects of today's hyper-consumerist culture. Talens tirelessly labors to organize "actions" ranging from choir-singing protests to rooftop speeches that urge people to stop shopping and to realize the threat lurking beneath the veneer of commodification. Concerned with how transnational corporations "colonize" our mental-scapes and destroy local neighborhoods, the charismatic "preacher" thrives on staging infiltrations of the Disney Store or boycotts of Starbuck's, even if it means frequent run-ins with the NYPD.
