Life is more mystery than misery

(or at least, that's what I like to think)

Craigslist Joe, or relaying on people’s kindness

clj_lithograph_01

Living off craigslist and relaying on the kindness of strangers. No money, no contacts, just an empty phone, a laptop and a little faith to solely live off craigslist for the next 31 days.

That’s the premise of Craigslist Joe, an 87 minute documentary produced by Zach Galifianakis and  lead and directed by Joseph Garner realized as a experiment to discover if technology can be a community helper instead of an isolation tool. And the conclusion is that yes, in general, you can use craigslist to contact with others and rely on human kindness in times of need, in spite of the general consensus about that affirmation might be. Without being and extraordinary film piece, I found that the documentary was quite entertaining most of the time, and, most of all, inspiring, since it presented a quick sketch of several and different characters, whom were the real protagonists, and which in spite all of their differences shared a sense of community, the open heart needed to let a complete stranger (Joseph Garner) and his cameraman sleep in your coach and share your story with them. So I highly recommend this film to all of you, that like me, feel that the world is becoming a much hostile and cold place that it was before, to kind of restore ( even a little bit) your faith in human kindness. CraigslitJoe is, if not an excellent documentary, a great contribution and a piece of hope, a reminder that there are extraordinary people and endless possibilities  all over the world if you are open enough to them.
