Becoming Fools Documentary Feature Film

[vc_row][/vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]We foolishly set out to produce a feature length documentary about a professional clown who served youth living in the streets of Guatemala. Why was it foolish? We didn’t have the financial resources to pull it off, it was in a foreign country and foreign language, it focused on a chaotic story with characters who lived in dangerous city streets, and to top it all … the main character of the story died when we were in pre-production.

But, we unanimously believed that God wanted us to share the story. So, we began the journey in faith. Now we’re adding another chapter to the story that many would consider foolish …[/vc_column_text][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h2″ style=”false” color=”#393836″ size=”20″ font_weight=”bold” font_style=”inhert” letter_spacing=”0″ margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”18″ font_family=”none” align=”left”]You can watch Becoming Fools on YouTube for free![/mk_fancy_title][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rr9zaBQflo”][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h2″ style=”false” color=”#393836″ size=”20″ font_weight=”bold” font_style=”inhert” letter_spacing=”0″ margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”18″ font_family=”none” align=”left”]Why?

At-risk youth are often caught in generational cycles of poverty because they lack the ability to dream beyond their current circumstances. We developed I Am Art to plant seeds of change by helping at-risk youth discover their unique identity in God’s greater story, and inspiring them to aspire together.

Creatives mentored at-risk youth for over five months in a theatrical production that honored their mentor, Italo Castro. The entire process was documented in the Becoming Fools film, a compelling and symbolic story of God’s grace.
