Last night the movie Lemonade premiered at the Brattle Street theater in Cambridge, MA. Erik Proulx, who publishes Please Feed the Animals, is the masteind and executive producer of the film.
Lemonade is a 40 minute documentary about how people changed their lives for the better after having been laid off. In the film 16 people, including yours truly, tell their individual stories. There's the guy who got laid off and posed nude Burt Reynolds-style to find a new job. There's the woman who lost her job and launched a yoga business. There's the guy who went to an interview and ended up in a truth campaign commercial. There's the guy who lost his job and decided to change his gender. And there's the guy who lost his job, got colon cancer and started a little blog called Adrants.
Each story is unique. Each story is heart warming. Each story illustrates the fact there is life after the pink slip.
