Moved by the possibility of a return to the "gift economy," director Ian MacKenzie felt compelled to "gift back" by spreading the message of Charles Eisenstein's book, "Sacred Economics." Eisenstein asserts that scarcity and growth are built into our current money system; a system that means that you have to find something that was once nature and make it into a good, or was once a gift relationship and make it into a service. This growth can only be maintained at a higher and higher cost. In healing the damage that has already been done, we must transition to a more connected, ecological and sustainable way of being.
