The World Is My Country "CAUTION: Watching this film may cause you to think YOU can change the world"

"Extremely unique and influential story, with its infectious idea that somehow managed to spark Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Camus and 20,000 Parisians into a mighty movement: 'World Citizenship!     This guy Garry Davis had the innocence of Forest Gump or Zelig -- but was an honest-to-goodness, unscripted, real-life person with common sense and guts -- blew me away. In a 21st century world torn apart by renewed walls of fear and divisions of hate,  Garry Davis' amazing story of 'World Unity' might well be giving us [as MARTIN SHEEN says in his intro] a 'roadmap to a better future'!"

The screenplay on Courbet everyone will be talking about

LUST FOR CONTROVERSY, written by Richard Spencer, America’s top celebrity editor, is currently featured in the 2019 Nice Film Market (it won Best Unproduced Screenplay). It’s the epic true story of French artist Gustave Courbet, who was called the most arrogant man in France, and, if he were alive today, would be insulted that a movie hasn’t already been made about him! Hear him counting at least five films for Van Gogh and about half a dozen for Coco ...
