Director Tom Shadyac Produces Documentary Posted on August 28th, 2011
If you enjoyed the crazy, insane-yet-delightful movies Ace Ventura, Liar Liar or Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey, you’ve heard of director Tom Shadyac. Known for his block-buster movies, 53-year-old Shadyac takes a new turn in the documentary I AM scheduled to hit select theatres this week. According to Shadyac in a recent interview on The View, he had it all – all the toys and all the perks and yet there was something missing from his life. It took a dramatic bike accident and subsequent recovery from Post-Concussion Syndrome for Shadyac to re-evaluate his life. The 53-year-old filmmaker, sold his mansion and now lives in a mobile home community in Malibu, California. Then he embarked on a quest for enlightenment, meeting with experts in science, philosophy and faith, among other areas. He spoke with the likes of David Suzuki, Noam Chomsky and Desmond Tutu, asking what’s wrong with the world and what can people do to make it right. The result is his new film I AM. What are you doing with your life? What are you doing to make the world a better place? What will it take for you to wake up? Get inspired – see I AM.
