Money & Life (2012)

Available worldwide

Money & Life asks a provocative question: 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 origins of money as a tool, through its becoming an end in itself, to the opportunity to create a whole new economic system – one that values human relationships over money.

The film says 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.

How can we move beyond being merely consumers, debtors and creditors, and put money in service to what we really care about as citizens, as human beings? Can we design a monetary circulation system that fosters democratic equality? What responsibilities should a corporate charter convey? What does it really mean to make a living?

This is an eye-opening documentary. It calls into question of our understanding of real life values.

Very beautiful and moving film. I had tears in my eyes at the end because it's now 2016 and I don't see that anything has changed.

Have Hope, 1111Han, Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will our monetary system. Staying informed is one of the first steps in changing things for the better.

If you liked this one, you'll gonna love the Positive Money movement and the animations about how the money system really works. Both the introductionary videos and the Banking 101 are great! Here's the link :

This was a very well produced documentary, which shows the need to have world citizens focus less on money and more on human values such as compassion, love, and gratitude. I am seeing more of this being displayed in the lives of my friends as well as in my own life. Excellent film.
