For our Easter offering this year, we wanted to do something joyous and life-affirming, as befits this ancient celebration of resurrection and rebirth.
Tom Shadyac is one of the great comedy directors of modern times, with films to his credit ranging from Ace Ventura, Pet Detective to Evan the Almighty, but he is also a man on a great journey of consciousness that has taken him from the ultimate Hollywood lifestyle of one of the world’s most successful directors to a very different kind of life that seeks to open doors in hearts and engage minds on behalf of the wonder of the human future.
His latest film, ‘I AM‘ reflects the powerful journey of a man who faced death, and, like so many of us in this age of medical miracles, discovered himself anew on his journey back.
Tom says, "Facing my own death brought an instant sense of clarity and purpose." He set out to make a film that would find out what’s wrong with our world, and discover ways of righting those wrongs. He also created the Foundation for I AM, dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those impoverished in our society.
In this electrifying and beautiful discussion with Whitley Strieber, Tom tells us of his journey from the world of private jets and great estates, to the world of discovering, understand and fulfilling human need. This is probably the most inspirational Easter show we’ve ever done, and all of us here at Dreamland and Unknowncountry hope that you enjoy it as our testament to the miracle of rebirth that is the theme of this ancient season.
Whitley Strieber says, "I AM is truly wonderful and inspirational. It’s a privilege to present this film and Tom Shadyac as our Easter offering on Dreamland."
