Simply amazing! Metta Participant Tan Lee Lim from Singapore alerted us to the astounding work by one of Hollywood’s greatest, Tom Shadyac — a documentary titled “I AM”.
Tom Shadyac is one of the most prolific comedy directors in Hollywood. His name may not instantly ring a bell but surely you will know his laugh out loud Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, The Nutty Professor, Bruce Almighty, Patch Adams just to name a few.
Facing his own death was something that jolted in an instance, a sense of clarity and purpose. With a camera and crew, he set out to ask spiritual and intellectual leaders the question What’s wrong with our world? and What we can do about it?
We will not spoil it by telling you the responses from the spiritual and intellectual leaders. What this trailer of I AM to get an idea and be amazed as to what it has to do with Metta Round The World
By the way, the moving, inspiring film won the Audience Choice Award and the Student Choice Award at the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride Colorado, where it premiered in May 2010.
