Watch: First Trailer for Tom Shadyac's Self-Discovery Doc 'I Am'
Back in October, we heard about the first venture into documentaries from director Tom Shadyac (Bruce Almighty, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) in the form of I Am, a film chronicling his midlife crisis turned self discovery. After a cycling accident resulted in a concussion lasting for months, the disorientation/recovery gave Shadyac some time to reflect on his life. After his time out of the spotlight, Shadyac decided to sell his house, move into a trailer park and reboot his life (rather than a film franchise). Now we have our first look at the doc (via /Film) that seems somewhat cheesy, but looks to make a difference in the world's view on life.
Watch the official trailer for Tom Shadyac's documentary I Am:
From the website: "Armed with nothing but his innate curiosity and a camera crew, Shadyac embarks upon a journey to discover how he as an individual, and we as a race, can improve the way we live. Appearing as character, commentator, guide, and even, at times, guinea pig, Shadyac meets with a variety of thinkers and doers - remarkable men and women from science, philosophy and faith, including: David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lynne McTaggart, Ray Anderson and John Francis. 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."
