Director Tom Shadyac – well known for his work in comedies like Ace Ventura, The Nutty Professor, Patch Adams, Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty – asks some of today’s most profound thinkers two questions in his latest project, a documentary entitled I Am? The film will be featured at the next Green Door Film Society Screening at Greens N Grains Dinner and a Movie Night on March 8.
“After a bicycle accident left Shadyac with debilitating post-concussion syndrome, the Hollywood player did some serious rethinking about success, status and stuff,” explained Los Angeles Times movie reviewer, Sheri Linden.
In his first “serious” film, Shadyac asks: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do about it? The film represents a firm determination to share that awakening to a prior life of personal excess and greed. It also serves as a creative method of investigating how he as an individual, and we as a race, can improve the way we live and walk in the world.
Greens N Grains Deli will host a natural and organic dinner special for $7.50 beginning at 6 pm. The screening will begin at 7 pm. There is no charge, but seating at is limited to 30 people. Reservations are requested.
