FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

BAREFOOT is a portrait of Mark Baumer, a writer and activist who walked barefoot for over 100 days to protest climate change. In a voice The New Yorker praised as “reminiscent of Andy Kaufman”, Baumer narrates his walk in self-recorded videos, sharing his offbeat take on life and how we all can make a difference.

Director Julie Sokolow will attend the film screening.
