Michael Franti’s STAY HUMAN Documentary Spreads Love

30 Dec, 2018

In Bay Area-based musician, activist and filmmaker Michael Franti’s new documentary “Stay Human,” which was featured at the 41st Mill Valley Film Festival, we see how human kindness, charity and love transcend all types of people around the world—many facing life’s difficulties. As a humanitarian, Franti, best known for performing with his band Spearhead, spreads ideas of equality and compassion through his touching music and genuine human connection. “Stay Human” is a documentary that follows him around the globe meeting with various people in remote locations–from a midwife in Indonesia to a young couple battling the devastating challenges of ALS–to comfort and share with them. Transcending language, culture, race and class, Franti connects with people on an emotional level bringing happiness and love to those in need.
