Illuminate Film Festival - Stay Human Film Screening
Sunday, June 3rd, 2018
Illuminate Film Festival - SPAC Main Theater
Meet six incredible spirits, from the Philippines to South Africa, who help us discover what it means to be human—and what it takes to stay that way. In a world full of hopelessness, these people are the antidote. Join hit singer-songwriter and director Michael Franti on a trip around our planet as he connects with people who bless their communities with life and love. Peek into what fuels artistic passion and creativity and purpose. Feel how mothers, sisters, brothers, fathers, sons and daughters implement purpose-driven lives and make a difference in their far-flung communities. Franti's quest to find a path to Stay Human (i.e., hold onto our humanity) in today's madness inspires us. On this experiential journey, his unique combination of song and personal stories helps us overcome cynicism. In its place, we discover the sparks of optimism and hope. Q&A with Michael Franti follows the film.
