Director Tom Shadyac directed some of Hollywood’s biggest and wildest and highest-grossing (in both senses of the word) comedies: “Ace Ventura,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Liar, Liar,” and “Bruce Almighty.” He had everything money could buy.
And then he almost lost it all. He was severely injured in a bicycle accident. It made him think that what he had was getting in the way of what he really wanted. So he began to give away his money. And he took a four-person crew on a journey to ask the most thoughtful people he could find to ask them the most profound questions he knew.
I Am features Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and many more with their thoughts on our world and what we can do to make life better for everyone. It opens next month.
