I Am is a 2010 American documentary film written, directed, and narrated by Tom Shadyac. The documentary explores Shadyac’s personal journey after a 2007 bicycle accident, “the nature of humanity”[1] and “world’s ever-growing addiction to materialism.”[2] The film, shot with Shadyac and a team of four,[3] contrasts sharply with Shadyac’s previous comedic work.Shadyac suffered post-concussion syndrome after a 2007 bicycle accident in Virginia,[2] experiencing months of acute headaches and hyper-sensitivity to light and noise. The injury followed the cumulative effects of previous mild head injuries Shadyac had suffered surfing, mountain biking and playing basketball.[2]

A 2011 New York Times article stated that “the symptoms of a concussion [didn’t] go away. Something as simple as a trip to the grocery store was painful for Shadyac, whose brain was unable to filter various stimuli. Shadyac subsequently gave away his excess fortune, opening a homeless shelter in Charlottesville, Virginia[1] and making a key donation to Telluride, Colorado’s effort to set aside a natural area at the town’s entrance.[4] He reoriented and simplified his life, sold his 17,000-square-foot (1,600 m2) Los Angeles mansion[2] and moved into a trailer park – albeit the exclusive Paradise Cove park in Malibu.[5]

As medical treatments failed to help, he isolated himself completely, sleeping in his closet and walling the windows of his mobile home with black-out curtains. Later, as his symptoms finally began to subside, the director wanted to share his inner quest in the way he knew best: through film.”[6] Shadyac likened the experience to Dante’s Seventh Circle of Hell.[7] (WIKIPEDIA}I AM documentary
