Local Screening of documentary on Children & Commercialism

November 15, 2009

The local child advocacy group STOK – Stop Targeting Our Kids – is hosting a public screening of the documentary Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood.

Produced by the Media Education Foundation, the documentary “throws desperately needed light on the practices of a relentless multi-billion dollar marketing machine that now sells kids and their parents everything from junk food and violent video games to bogus educational products and the family car. Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children’s advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world.”

When: Thursday, November 19 at 7pm

Where: Wyoming Park United Methodist Church, 2244 Porter SW in Wyoming, MI
