INTERVIEW WITH JIM BAUMER AND DIRECTOR JULIE SOKOLOW OF BAREFOOT, THE MARK BAUMER STORY
We were so honored to chat with Jim Baumer the father of Activist Mark Bauer and award-winning filmmaker Julie Sokolow, director of Barefoot, The Mark Baumer Story, a loving portrait of Mark Baumer, an environmental activist, avant-garde writer, and vegan, who hiked barefoot for over 100 days across America to draw attention to climate change.
In a voice The New Yorker praised as “reminiscent of Andy Kaufman”, Baumer narrates his offbeat take on life and how we all can make a difference. Edited from Baumer’s own self-recorded videos, along with interviews from family and friends, it’s a moving portrait filled with laughs, tragedy, and inspiration.
A movie about a man who loved life loved the world, and it showed in everything he did. Mark was struck and killed by an S.U.V while on his walk in Florida.
