Docs and Dialogue - "I Am"

“DOCS and DIALOGUE” in May: “I Am” The final “Docs and Dialogue” evening until the fall will take place on Tuesday, May 21, at 7:00pm in Patton Auditorium. The film that night will be “I Am”. “I Am” poses two vital questions: “What’s wrong with our world?” and “What can we do to make it better?” Those themes are rooted in director Tom Shadyac’s experience with a cycling accident which left him incapacitated with no certainty of recovery. Shadyac did recover, and emerged with both a new sense of purpose and a desire to investigate how he and all of us could improve the way we live and walk in the world. This led him to seek out and interview notable figures from the realms of science, philosophy, academia and faith, resulting in a film that challenges our preconceptions about human behavior while at the same time celebrating the human spirit. Members, friends and guests are welcome and encouraged to join in watching and then discussing this inspiring documentary
