In search of wisdom found in unlikely places, THE PHILOSOPHY KINGS takes us on a journey through the halls of the most prestigious colleges and universities in America to learn from the staff members who see it all and have been through it all: the custodians.. This thought-provoking documentary interweaves the untold stories of triumph and tragedy from the members of society who are often disregarded and ignored, and seeks out the kind of wisdom that gets you through the day and the lessons one learns from surviving hard times, lost loves, and shattered dreams.. Winner of the Emerging Cinematic Vision Award at the Camden International Film Festival and Best Documentary at the Lighthouse International Film Festival.. “The visuals are crisp, and Shen’s seamless editing creates conversation between his various subjects, as the spoken musing of one plays over the images of another. Kings arcs hard toward its uplifting ending, but it also completely earns it.” - Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly
