Money & Life is a passionate and inspirational essay-style documentary that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This cinematic odyssey connects the systemic dots of our current economic pains and offers a new story of money based on an emerging paradigm of planetary well-being that understands all of life as profoundly interconnected.
This film takes us on a journey through the current global financial crisis and how we got where we are. Most importantly, Money and Life poses that we owe it to ourselves to understand the fundamentals of this technology called money in order to be effective participants in the economic transformation that is happening around us - a shift more rapid and equally as profound as the Industrial Revolution.
A tapestry of beautifully shot interviews, the film is woven together with compelling vignettes of individuals and businesses consciously transforming their relationship with money. Together with dynamic animation, an original musical score and an elegant narration, the film tells a new story of money while more broadly telling a new story of humanity. With a touch of humor and a lot of heart, Money and Life aspires to present a new view of our understanding and practices in the world of money.
