Is Your Life Worthwhile?

Have you ever wondered if your life is worthwhile? We all long for significance, but where is it be found? Is our value to be found in the size of our bank balance, our grades, our friends, our fame? What happens if we don’t have those things — or if we lose them? In this Short Answers film, Andy Bannister shows why all those attempts to prove our value fail and why perhaps we’ve been looking for our sense of worth in all the wrong places.

Thanks to our friend Elizabeth Humble for letting us film at her jewellery studio.
