Win 2 Tickets to "May I Be Frank?" at Nux Wellness Centre
Want to see what happened when a 54-year old Sicilian from Brooklyn got obsessed with a raw, vegan, organic cafe in San Fransisco? Then talk to the film's director via Skype about filming the real-life doc? You could buy tickets, OR you could win them, and isn't that much better (free=better)? Besides, now that POP Montreal's over, what else are you doing on a Friday night?
How to win: Leave a comment here by Thursday at 11:00pm about your favourite food to eat raw (oysters and sustainable Pacific tuna belly sashimi aren't exactly vegan, but I'm going with those...) and/or what you love or hate about Crudessence (Montreal's only raw, organic sit-down restaurant).
More on the film, in case I didn't sell you on it:
May I Be Frank documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante's life. Frank, a 54 year old Sicilian from Brooklyn finds himself living in San Francisco struggling with addiction and depression. He is severely overweight and must rely on pharmaceutical drugs to combat his Hepatitis C. One day Frank unknowingly stumbles into a local restaurant in San Francisco. Cafe Gratitude, a raw, organic and vegan cafe. Frank becomes friends with the staff and is invited back to come into the cafe everyday for the next month.
What took place over the 42 days wasn't anything the boys or Frank could have expected. Franks life dramatically shifts in ways far beyond his physical body. Initially believing he was just going to lose some weight and get healthy, Frank and the boys had no idea it would affect so many aspects of his life. The film transforms the lives of everyone involved, and through Franks story the viewer is given the opportunity to see transformation for themselves. The film becomes documentation about the human condition, and what it means to really fall in love again.
If you don't win, you can still buy tickets online, and they'll be available for purchase this Friday night before the show at Nux at 5221 Blvd de Maisonneuve West, right across from Vendome station (though they sold out last time).
