For Immediate Release:

March 28, 2011—New York: With The Human Experience due for release digitally and on DVD this month, the filmmakers at Grassroots Films are touring the world once again; this time, they’re headed to Australia. The filmmakers are traveling throughout Australia screening The Human Experience at universities and venues across the country, including those in Canberra, Melbourne, Ballarat, Brisbane, and Sydney.

The Human Experience is a true story that chronicles the adventures of young Brooklynite Jeffrey Azize as he seeks answers to the question: “What is it that unites us all as human beings?” Jeffrey, along with his band of brothers, endeavors to understand the true essence of the human spirit by visiting homeless New Yorkers, Peruvian orphans, and never-before-seen Ghanaian lepers.

The Human Experience has been an international indie film phenomenon, spanning the globe with over 400 film screening events leading up to the release (see world tour video here). The filmmakers have toured along with the film, hosting Q &A sessions and screenings across the United States and the world. This is the film’s and the filmmakers’ first trip to Australia.
