Actor / EntertainerI am Jared Leto and on 4th of July I am filming a massive portrait of America. Ask me anything!

Jul 4th 2017 by _JaredLeto • 11 Questions • 5774 Points

This Tuesday, the 4th of July, we are filming a massive portrait of America, capturing a single day in the life of this beautiful country in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It’s an incredible opportunity to document the USA during a very important time in our country. And we need your help.

We are asking you to film what’s important, impactful, challenging or inspiring to you. It can be a single shot, a person, an entire event, or a compelling story - we want to see your America in all its imperfect glory.

When shooting, please try to be as brave, bold and creative as possible. The most compelling footage will be what makes it into the final portrait. In addition, we would like you or your subject to look into the camera and answer the following questions.

  • What is your name and where are you from?
  • What does America mean to you?
  • What does the American dream mean to you?
  • What is the state of the country today?
  • What are you afraid of?
  • What are your hopes and dreams?

If there is anything else that you have the desire to say or share, please feel free.

Our goal is to create this portrait based on footage captured on a single day - July 4th, 2017 - but if there are events or images that transpire on another day that we feel we need to tell our story, we will include those.
