Frank Ferrante, an overweight guy with deep spiritual wounds and an enormous sense of humor, thought he was signing onto a sort of vegan life fix: 42 days of raw foods, a shot of liquefied wheatgrass every morning, exercise, weigh-ins, holistic medical exams, weekly colonics, daily affirmations. And then all of a sudden he’d be thin and happy.
But transformation isn’t a technical fix. What Frank learned — and what we learn as well as we travel the journey with him in a powerful, intensely honest documentary called May I Be Frank — is that transformation turns you inside out.

Because the true consequences of Chernobyl provide a baseline for what people should know as the impacts of the disaster unfold in Japan, EnviroVideo has released an important new video, “Chernobyl: A Million Casualties.” Watch it at http://blip.tv/file/4922080
This 29-minute film is based on the book recently published by the New York Academy of Sciences, Chernobyl: Consequences of the Catastrophe for People and the Environment, which concludes that, based on now available medical data, 985,000 people died as a result of the Chernobyl disaster, as of 2004.
“Chernobyl: A Million Casualties” will air nationally on Free Speech TV (freespeech.org) on April 23rd. The 25th anniversary of Chernobyl is April 26.
