Friday, Sept. 5: I am “We started by asking what’s wrong with the world and ended by discovering what’s right with it.” Director Tom Shadyac travels the world with two questions: what is wrong with our world and what can we do about it. What he learns is inspirational and life changing.

Larry Johnson will attend our screening and facilitate our conversation afterwards.
