Indie Film Trailer - The Philosopher Kings

Since it's Indie Movie Monday (#IndieMM), I thought I'd post up a trailer by my tweep, Transcendental Media, for their indie feature documentary film, "The Philosopher Kings." Check it out!

"In search of wisdom found in unlikely places, The Philosopher Kings takes us on a journey through the halls of the most prestigious colleges and universities in America to learn from the staff members who see it all and have been through it all: the custodians. This thought-provoking, feature-length documentary interweaves 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 you through the day and the lessons one learns from surviving hard times, lost loves, and shattered dreams.

From the producers of the multiple-award winning Flight from Death, The Philosopher Kings gives us the opportunity to learn from eight incredible individuals whom we would never have otherwise taken a moment out of our day to acknowledge".

Note: For more info on the film, check out the website. Thanks for reading!

(p.s. If you have a project(s) you'd like me to check out (i.e. fan trailer, short, spoof, animation, etc), feel free to contact me. I'm always on the lookout for fresh stuff from emerging filmmakers!)

Really interesting trailer. You know, it's too bad that documentaries oare often overlooked when people start talking about independent film, because there are a LOT of interesting documentaries out there, and I'd bet a majority of them are done by independent artists who are passionate about the form.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! I agree about documentaries - they are very interesting. They are one of the categories that interest me at film festivals. Appreciate your input, thanks for stopping by!
