In collaboration with the Toronto and Halton-Peel POC chapters, we are proud to offer you an experience like no other: The POC premiere of “Do I Need This?”, a film about consumerism and excess created by Emmy-winning filmmaker, Kate Schermerhorn.

The quirky and relatable film is about our complicated relationship with the stuff in our lives, and the stuff from which happiness is truly made. On the surface, Do I Need This? is a joy ride through American excessive consumption habits. At its core, it is a deep and genuine reflection on aging, family, and happiness.

‘Unique, quizzical, quirky, and funny’ – Film Threat ‘Immensely relatable’ – San Francisco Chronicle

“Our members and guests unanimously fell in love with the film and enjoyed an incredibly meaningful and profound discussion.” – Michelle Cicirello, NAPO, Chicago

‘I recommend it to every person living on this planet.’ – NAPO member
