I AM is a documentary in which film director, Tom Shadyac, following a serious cycling accident, asks a number of intellectuals and spiritual leaders what is wrong with the world and how things can be improved.

Disturbing images

The documentary includes footage of images of war, the aftermath of the 9/11 attack on New York, animals fighting and hunting, as well as civil rights protests. The film also includes a clip from Luis Buñuel's 1929 film 'Un Chien Andalou'. In the scene, a man holding a razor holds open a woman's eye, before he appears to slice into her eyeball with the razor. The scene is very brief and, although there is no blood, optic fluid appears to ooze from the eyeball. The documentary also includes two brief crime scene images. These occur during the course of a scientific experiment in which the brain function of a subject is monitored as he is shown a random selection of images on a computer screen, including two images of dead bodies. However, despite some blood, there is no clear detail of injuries.

Mild bad language includes 'ass', 'damn' and 'God'.
