Synopsis: Pvt. Francis returns from serving in Iraq as a broken alcoholic who has lost all passion for life. An encounter with a fellow veteran, now destitute, initiates a spiritual crisis that leads the young man to renounce his family’s wealth and to seek out a more meaningful life among the homeless and rejected on the streets of Brooklyn.

Soon a growing fraternity of assorted and eccentric oddballs form around Francis as these modern day friars seek to muddle their way towards enlightenment.

A series of funny and often irreverent vignettes, adapted from the true story of St. Francis of Assisi, all illustrating the simplest joys of a life based on humility, faith and compassion.

Francis of Brooklyn won Best Dramatic Feature at DIY Film Festival 2013 as well as Best Actor and Best Director at the Bootleg Film Festival Toronto 2012. The film was also an Official Selection of Spirit Quest Film Festival 2013, NewFilmmakers NY 2012, Great Lakes International Film Festival 2012 and Sun & Sand, the Mississippi Film and Music Festival 2012.

Though known now primarily as the patron saint of animals, St. Francis dedicated himself to a life of absolute poverty and service in accord with the literal dictates of the Gospel. In doing so, he provided a radical example of life lived in accordance to the teachings and examples of Jesus to a world obsessed with power, wealth and glory.

This modern adaptation of his story is based on the current understanding of the real St. Francis as well as a number of fables and legends of the man and his fellow "lesser brothers" as relayed by his contemporary admirers.
Francis of Brooklyn was shot over 9 months in and around the streets of Brooklyn and New York.
