Ithaca College will host a screening of the film “Money & Life” on Wednesday, April 16 at 7pm in Textor 101. “Money & Life” is an inspirational documentary that asks a provocative question: can we see the economic crisis not as a disaster, but as a tremendous opportunity? This film 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.
