About the Film:

Not Business As Usual is a provocative look at capitalism as envisioned by Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman, the most influential economist of the late 20th century. The film explores why he only measured success by one metric: Profit. And how that narrow view has resulted in environmental destruction, human rights abuses and ironically enough, unsustainable business practices.

This feature length documentary tracks the changing landscape of business with the rising tide of conscious capitalism and features the inspiring stories of several subversive entrepreneurs from Vancouver who are redefining what it means to be successful.

About the Venue: The Riverdale Hub offers an innovative and affordable green work environment to progressive organizations and individuals. At the same time, the Hub provides placement opportunities and training to women through its social enterprises – creating a bridge between minority groups and mainstream communities through shared space, kindred spirit and common vision.
