"May I Be Frank", an independent film about "sex, drugs and transformation" documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante’s life. Frank is 54 years old, obese, depressed and addicted. He stumbles into a local raw, organic and vegan restaurant in San Francisco, Café Gratitude. When Ryland, a server at Café Gratitude asks Frank, “What is one thing you want to do before you die?” Frank replies, “I want to fall in love one more time, but no one will love me looking the way I do." Ryland, his brother Cary, and Conor, his best friend, are inspired by the possibility of helping Frank. For the next 42 days, Frank will eat only raw food, practice gratitude, visit local holistic practitioners, and get a weekly colonic. Ryland, Conor, and Cary get to support Frank’s miraculous transformation. Frank gets a new body, a clearer mind, and most importantly, a soaring spirit. "May I Be Frank" documents the essence of the human condition and what it truly means to fall in love again-something we can all relate to.

The film has been endorsed by Alice Walker, Woody Harrelson, and Jason Mraz, among many others, and continues to open hearts and move to tears everywhere it is screened. It has been recognized and won awards at film festivals across the U.S. including the Awareness, Green Lifestyle, Kountze, Real to Reel, Sausalito and Topanga Film Festivals.

Multi-Platinum and Grammy Award winning recording artist, humanitarian and environmental advocate Jason Mraz says, "this film is a triumph... where the hero defeats the villain within himself AND gets the girl in the end. I've followed Frank on his transformational journey a few times now, and each time I do, I awaken to something new and true about my own life's purpose. This film is an amazing gift for those looking to cultivate their soul resources." Jason Mraz wrote the song for this film which can he heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWM1l7wZDEU

After the screening, Frank Ferrante and Conor Gaffney, one of the filmmakers, will be discussing the film and answering any questions the audience may have.
