MONEY & LIFE is a passionate and inspirational essay-style documentary that makes a provocative proposition: Can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity. This cinematic odyssey takes us on a journey, from the original purpose of money to connecting the systemic dots on the current global financial crisis and how we got here. But most importantly the film turns towards what is emerging in the so-called New Economy. Weaving between interviews with an all-star cast of deeply engaged thought leaders and compelling vignettes of people being transformed in their relationship with money. The film looks at new practices and innovations in the world of money, such as complementary currencies. It profiles courageous businesses leading the way in sustainable practices and the renewal of healthy communities. There is a sea change occurring in the world today, the so-called "paradigm shift" of the globalized world. Economist Bernard Lietaer states that "money is the highest leverage point for change in our society." Money & Life aspires to be a part of bringing a new consciousness to our understanding and the practices in the world of money through a film that will be part-investigative journalism, part-cinematic essay, serious ad light-hearted, intimate and inspiring. It will inform you and more importantly it will open your heart, expand your mind, and help us collectively realize our greatest capacity as human beings.
