Event Description

You've read the book - now see the upcoming short film! The short will be published at 9 am PST on March 1, 2012, on the website and simultaneously on more sites, including Village Vancouver.

The premiere will be followed by a LIVE Q&A with Charles Eisenstein and director Ian MacKenzie.

Watch Sacred Economics, a new short film by Ian MacKenzie, just released online here:

After the film, live conversation with Charles Eisenstein and Ian MacKenzie hosted by Village member Justin Ritchie.

Directed by Ian MacKenzie (The Revolution Is Love), and co-produced by Velcrow Ripper (Occupy Love) and Gregg Hill, this brand new short film shares Charles' most important ideas from his book Sacred Economics.

With stunning animation from Brian Duffy and Adam Giangregorio, and the evocative music of Chris Zabriskie, this short film will inspire, catalyze, and accelerate the shift of money in the age of transition.

SACRED ECONOMICS contains a few clips from the upcoming feature documentary OCCUPY LOVE

About the film & book

Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth.

Today, these trends have reached their extreme - but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
