Special Appearance at the Varsity Theatre (Seattle, WA):
Director Tom Shadyac will appear In Person Friday, February 25 for a Q&A after the 7:10pm show and to introduce the 9:30pm show.
I Am, a prismatic and probing exploration of our world, what's wrong with it, and what we can do to make it better, represents writer/director Tom Shadyac's first foray into non-fiction following a career as one of Hollywood's leading comedy practitioners (Ace Ventura, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty). I Am recounts what happened to the filmmaker after a cycling accident left him incapacitated. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged a changed man. Disillusioned with life on the A-list, he sold his multi-million dollar mansion and moved to a much much smaller home, deciding to start life anew.
Shadyac embarks upon a journey to discover how he as an individual, and we as a race, can improve the way we live. Appearing on-screen as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig, Shadyac meets with a variety of thinkers and doers—remarkable men and women from the worlds of science, philosophy and faith—including David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson, John Francis, Coleman Barks and Marc Ian Barasch. An irrepressible Everyman who asks many questions but offers no easy answers, he takes the audience to places it has never been before, and presents even familiar phenomena in completely new and different ways.
