6677"May I Be Frank?" Interview & Screenings
- Oct 8, 2010Hi all,
I recently had Frank Ferrante, subject, and Gregg Marks, co-director
of "May I Be Frank?" on my radio show and interviewed them on video.
Have you seen this incredibly powerful film yet? You should! It's
showing at next week's SF Documentary Film Fest. Here's a link to the
trailer and screening dates/times: http://www.sfindie.com/movie/?
fid=48 Frank Ferrante will be at the 10/22 and 10/25 screenings. If
you know anyone dealing with depression, drug addiction, weight
issues, etc..., bring them to this film and make sure you go to the
screening with Frank in attendance.
If you haven't seen it yet, here's the description: "May I Be Frank
documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante's life. Frank is 54
years old, obese, depressed and addicted. He stumbles into a local
raw, organic and vegan restaurant in San Francisco, Café Gratitude.
When Ryland, a server at Café Gratitude asks Frank "What is one thing
you want to do before you die?" Frank replies, "I want to fall in love
one more time, but no one will love me looking the way I do".
Ryland, his brother Cary, and Conor, his best friend, are inspired by
the possibility of helping Frank. For the next 42 days, Frank will eat
only raw food, practice gratitude, visit local holistic practitioners,
and get a weekly colonic. Ryland, Conor, and Cary get to support
Frank's miraculous transformation. Frank gets a new body, a clearer
mind, and most importantly, a soaring spirit. May I Be Frank documents
the essence of the human condition and what it truly means to fall in
