I Am is not only a film but a social experiment that took strangers in Philadelphia and asked them to finish this sentence. "I am ___." Through these responses, the film-maker was able to create a montage of answers and then delve deeper into a select few and allow them to explore their answers even further, creating not only written poems but a visual metaphor of these responses.
