Interview With Julie Sokolow, Mary & Jim Baumer For Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story [Exclusive Interview]

Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story

Can one person really make a difference? Can the voice and actions of one really bring change? This is something that sometimes seems impossible from where we sit. But then stories come out of people that by all physical sense are the same as us. But have extraordinary passion and will power.

This is the case of Mark Baumer a man who wanted to bring global awareness to climate change. He was an environmental activist, avant-garde writer, and vegan who hiked barefoot for over 100 days across America to draw attention to climate change. To keep track of his journey, he had self-recorded videos that he would upload to YouTube for everyone to watch. In these videos, he narrates his offbeat take on life and how we can all make a difference.

Now his life is chronicled in an award-winning documentary titled, Barefoot: The Mark Baumer Story. This film comes from award-winning filmmaker Julie Sokolow. It’s edited from Baumer’s own videos and includes interviews from family and friends. This film highlights a man that loved life, loved the world, and wasn’t afraid to show it in his unique way.
