Have you ever heard it said that "Some people are so poor that all they have is money?" Unfortunately, too many of us find this to be true as we work longer hours to make ends meet. However, we all have gifts we can share that take us out of the realm of buying and selling for profit. Watch this film inspired by Lewis Hyde's beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World and learn how freeing it can be to become part of the gift economy in small ways. GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. An intimate exploration of real-life gift economies, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we labour in service of our gifts, and a celebration of the imagination.
