“I AM” documentary film to be shown at the St. Mane Theatre


Fri, Oct 12th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – Lanesboro Arts Center will present a FREE screening of ‘I AM,’ on Friday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. ‘I AM’ asks two questions: What’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? The filmmaker behind the inquiry is Tom Shadyac, one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners and the creative force behind such blockbusters as Ace Ventura and The Nutty Professor. However, in ‘I AM’, Tom steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possible for good. He ultimately recovered, and emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed, and to investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live and walk in the world. Following the film will be a community discussion led by Fred Kiel of Lanesboro.

In the film, Shadyac interviews scientists, psychologists, artists, environmentalists, authors, activists, philosophers, entrepreneurs, and others in his quest for truth. Bishop Desmond Tutu, Dr. Noam Chomsky, historian Dr. Howard Zinn, physicist Lynne McTaggart, and poet Coleman Banks are some of the subjects who engage in fascinating dialogue with Shadyac. Ironically, in the process of trying to figure out what’s wrong with the world, Shadyac discovered there’s more right than he ever imagined. The film’s overwhelming emphasis is focused on what we can do to make the world better. “I AM isn’t as much about what you can do, as who you can be,” he says. “And from that transformation of being, action will naturally follow.”

Admission to Third Friday Film Night is free. Donations are appreciated to help offset film showing rights. The St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Avenue N in Lanesboro.

Lanesboro Arts Center serves the community as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. 507-467-2446 / www.lanesboroarts.org.
