THE PHILOSOPHER KINGS
May 21st - 27th

May 27th 8pm Screening is a double feature with FLIGHT FROM DEATH

dir. Patrick Shen
USA, 2009, English/Spanish, 70m

"With an engaging eye and an eye for balancing drama, humor and despair, Shen transforms these personal mini-narratives in a larger conversation about the job of being human." - AFI - Discovery Channel's Silverdocs Documentary Festival

"Terrific..." - G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle

"..a deeply human exploration of the people we never see...it's brilliant." - Jason Silva, Host/Producer, Current TV

In search of wisdom found in unlikely places, The Philosopher Kings takes us on a journey through the halls of the most prestigious colleges and universities in America to learn from the staff members who see it all and have been through it all: the custodians.

This thought-provoking, feature-length documentary interweaves the untold stories of triumph and tragedy from the members of society who are often disregarded and ignored, and seeks out the kind of wisdom that gets you through the day and the lessons one learns from surviving hard times, lost loves, and shattered dreams.

From the producers of the multiple-award winning Flight from Death, The Philosopher Kings gives us the opportunity to learn from eight incredible individuals whom we would never have otherwise taken a moment out of our day to acknowledge.
