Description

Our time and energy is traded for money; our money is traded for goods and services. But, there is an alternative: the gift economy. Based on the book by Lewis Hyde, this meditative visual essay shows the value and importance of a gift. It’s also about the impact of gift-giving; a sharp look at how we may be losing our ability to be surprised, gracious, and appreciative.

“A convincing argument that art has the capacity to change the world for the better.” – Phil Guie, Film Forward
