The luminous life and work of James Broughton has hit the big screen. Big Joy: the Adventures of James Broughton provides a humorous antidote to the cynicism and materialism of our age.
Led by journalist and futurist Stephen Silha, who had a mentorship relationship with Broughton for the last 10 of his 85 years, the Big Joy project brings together the skills of many artists and media-makers who have been influenced by Broughton.
The Big Joy film creates a journey through the life and works of the exquisite poet, a vibrant lover, innovator, and role model James Broughton. Most importantly, those people who knew or worked with James will share their stories and insights into the life of this master of visual and verbal images.
James’ story shows what it means to be yourself, how making art can keep you from losing hope, and how you can find true love – and yourself – at age 62, or any age.
Big Joy: the Adventures of James Broughton needs your help to be born. We warmly invite you to join our circle of partners in creation. We’re poised on the edge of a huge cultural shift, and we sincerely hope you’ll help us bring some Big Joy wisdom into it by making a donation, and by spreading the word about this inspiring Project.
