"If you can't keep the house of God clean, you can't keep no house clean."
The Philosopher Kings
Dir. Patrick Shen, 2009, 70 min.
In search of wisdom found in unlikely places, The Philosopher Kings travels the halls of prestigious colleges and universities across America to learn from the staff members who see it all and have been through it all: the janitors. This thought-provoking, feature-length documentary weaves together 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 them through the day. "Most of us know what it feels like to have something to say and no opportunity to share it. The Philosopher Kings reveals what happens when seemingly 'ordinary' people, who have never had an opportunity to speak publicly, openly share their experiences and the things they care most deeply about," says director Patrick Shen.
