Help raise greater awareness on the role of money in our lives and how
together we can help build a more equitable and sustainable economy
Money and Life is a compelling cinematic journey that examines the origins of money, how the role of money has changed over time, how it shapes our lives and world today, and the emerging movement to create new economic models that redefine our relationships with money.
The film presents a tapestry of expert interviews, narration, animated graphics and stories of individuals, communities, and small businesses who are seeking innovative ways to transform their relationship with money at the personal, local and global level. Experts include economists, authors, religious leaders, and a former JP Morgan executive.
Money and Life helps viewers understand the history and fundamentals of money in order to be more informed participants in the economic transformation happening around us.
Ultimately, the film asks, how can we move beyond being merely consumers, debtors and creditors, and create a more equitable and sustainable economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st Century?
