Found on Twitter
On Twitter, I'm a follower of The Mayor Movie. It's short for The Mayor of Strawberry Fields, a documentary film about a homeless New Yorker named Gary who, as the official description says, "has lived at John Lennon's Imagine Memorial and decorated it with flowers for the past 14 years." The doc's trailer indicates that it broaches the issue of whether or not Gary, with his idiosyncratic profession, is deserving of that lofty status: an artist. In a more general sense, The Mayor of Strawberry Fields looks like an offbeat and sympathetic exploration of a slice of humanity that clearly has much to offer the world.
