ManKind Project USA

In this engaging discussion, we invite you to join us along with our guests, Ien Chi, David Bonnett, and Jon Bregel, as we traverse the world of emotional filmmaking and personal reinvention. We talk about "I Do." “I Do” is an exploration of a love that surpasses time and adversity, unfolding within breast cancer's shadow. This ten-minute documentary follows widower Jim Kuhlman as he candidly reflects on his enduring love story with late wife Julie, serving as a reminder that love's echo endures, even as life's chapters unfold.

With their combined creative expertise, our guests shed light on their personal experiences with grief, love, and loss, culminating in a compelling exploration of emotional resonance and transformation.

Listen in as we probe the intricacies of the creative process, drawing from the experiences of our guests who have each undergone significant personal reinvention. From the evolution of Jon's production company to David's journey of finding purpose within the studio system, we uncover how our guests have derived meaning from their creative work.

Our guests reflect on their journeys, sharing wisdom on overcoming adversity and reconnecting with self-love and purpose. From Ien's transformative TEDx talk to the changing cultural expectations for men, we delve into the profound challenge of personal change. This episode offers an in-depth look into the intersections of creativity, transformation, and the human experience, leaving you with thought-provoking insights and inspirations to apply in your own journey.
