The Weekend Cocktail: A Toast to I AM

BY GWEN KENNEALLY

This week I attended the première of my friend Tom Shadyac’s new film I AM at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood. Facing his own mortality after a serious bicycle accident, this well-known and successful filmmaker (The Nutty Professor, Ace Ventura, Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty), he got a true sense of clarity and purpose and  grabbed a camera and a crew of four and went on a journey of discovery. He traveled around the world to ask some of the most significant minds some challenging and rarely asked questions. “What’s wrong with our world?” and “What can we do about it?”

Featuring Desmond Tutu, Coleman Barks, Thom Hartmann, Chris Jordan, Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Lynne McTaggart and many others this film is a true work of art and passion! As we hear insight from these awesome visionaries we discover with Tom and the crew what is right with the world.

The film opens today, March 11.  I recommend going with friends, as it will spark some wonderful conversations! For more info you can go to the website

I am so proud of Tom for his fearless work and openhearted sharing of this powerful journey.  I dedicate this Weekend Cocktail— “The Spiritual Enlightenment”—to him. Cheers my friend…beautiful work!
