Going Big Box vs. Going Local

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, this hilarious video from Movement Vision Lab explores the pros and cons of shopping at a big multi-nationals versus local, community-owned businesses. ‘Tis the season for consumption. We should work on that. But in the meantime, if you have to buy something for your loved ones, why not think about where you shop? This new film by Amy Wolf, a Movement Vision Lab Film Fellow in 2007, follows one woman on a shopping quest — as we learn about the consequences at every turn. Keep these lessons in mind as you’re stocking up on stuff!
