From Grassroots Films of Brooklyn, New York comes THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE – the story of a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? Who is Man? Why do we search for meaning?
In this movie, their journey brings them into the middle of the lives of the homeless on the streets of New York City, the orphans and disabled children of Peru, and the abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana, Africa. What the young men discover changes them forever. Through one on one interviews and real life encounters, the brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit.
The evening will conclude with a brief opportunity to ask questions of the film’s lead actors Michael Campo and Jeffrey Azize.

One of our featured Artists for May, Julio Cesar Rodarte states:
As an artist, I wonder how my ideas are originated. I guess at times they are spontaneous and at times those ideas are thought over and over. The Human Head is a structured painting that reflects the use of colors as in my other artwork. It conveys my own idea that everything in this world is under a certain time and space; just like our thoughts that happen in a unique time in a unique space.
