What’s wrong with the world? What can we do about it? These are questions tackled in the documentary film I Am, which will screen at the First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown on Friday, May 10, 7:30 p.m. The church invites the public to the screening, which will be followed by a community discussion.

After recovering from a serious cycling accident that almost left him incapacitated, director Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor) had questions about life and success. Accompanied by a small film crew, he traveled around, enlisting journalists, scientists and spiritual leaders, seeking answers to his questions. I Am is a movie about his quest for enlightenment. It is a life-affirming and energetic call to improve the way people live.

This event is free and popcorn is included. Kids over 12 and adults are invited. The First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown is located at 10 Academy St. in Cold Spring.
