Los Angeles, CA (I-Newswire) April 18, 2012 -
For a recent red-carpet occasion that featured the acclaimed documentary May I Be Frank, Gen Y TV's Britt Hysen was on site to cover the event, snagging interviews and speaking with the various voices behind the groundbreaking film that highlights the growing consciousness of Generation Y. Often referred to as "The Voice of Gen Y," Britt Hysen is the founder ofGen Y Hub, an online community for professional Millennials, that allows young adults in their 20s and 30s a platform for creative, informative and personal expression. Hysen's poignant coverage of the May I Be Frank event proved to be telling of how incredibly powerful the conscious movement of Generation Y has been and continues to become.
May I Be Frank is a moving documentary that tells a unique story of a man on a journey of self-transformation with the aid of three young men from Generation Y. Long time addict Frank Ferrante was a bold 54-year-old man feeling depressed, fat and unworthy when he decided to step foot into the San Franciscan Cafe Gratitude, a raw vegan restaurant that he mistakenly took to be associated with the 12 step recovery program. It was this spontaneous decision in 2005 that led Frank to meet three inspired young men in their 20s, Ryland, Conor, and Cary, who eventually introduced him to an unexpected journey of self-transformation.
The documentary film is a courageous effort that speaks volumes about the intentions of Generation Y and how these Millennials were stimulated to make an actual change, to be a part of something meaningful and transformationally effective. In her coverage of the event, Hysen spoke with therapist and motivational speaker Dr. Marissa Pei, "There is a growing group of individuals in the younger population who know what not to do, who are learning from the past, who are not buying into all the things that were natural for them to fall into," Pei said in regards to how the film represents Generation Y. "They are being tenacious around something new."
An exemplary portrayal of self-love and transformation, the documentary May I Be Frank is a worthy find. It is a rich story of how the new generation of adults, armed with ever-advancing technology and a movement of elevating consciousness, are actively enacting positive change within the world. "May I Be Frank exemplified the strengths of Generation Y - loving, compassionate, healthy, spirited and entrepreneurial. The filmmakers truly represent the benevolent nature of young adults today and prove that love transcends all generations," stated Hysen.
When asked how the generational differences between himself and his young guides influenced his life-changing experience, Ferrante said, "They were the ones delivering a message that I had forgotten, which is a message of self-love."
