Money & Life is an 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 dots on 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.
Money & Life invites us to meet the challenge of our time:
to participate in the great transition to a sustainable, equitable and restorative economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st century.

Money & Life is a lucid exploration about how one of humanities most brilliant inventions has turned into its darkest shadow, how money and debt haunt our highest aspirations, and undermine our greatest needs. Katie Teague's documentary is populated by some of the most thoughtful monetary pioneers who explain money's curse and promise, and point to new economic models that create social justice, economic security, and environmental health.
~ Paul Hawken, Blessed Unrest
Money & Life does offer an engrossing history of the very concept of currency, and it raises some very salient points about our relationship with money. ~ SF Weekly
