A feature film based on the true events of Jerry's life, the 23 year, ongoing effort to realize this motion picture is a demonstration of human potential and the power of a community fueled by compassion.
It was in November of 1997 that Ezio promised Jerry they'd one day tell his story as an important film event. 2020 brings the next, exciting chapter in the journey as we look forward to sharing this effort with the world.
In 1985, JERRY LUCIDO was 12-years-old and full of wonderment. His curiosity would lead him to seek out the mysteries of the cosmos. JERRY would find an affinity in how Jupiter's gravity makes our world possible.
When he expressed grave concerns for the future of the Earth, a psychiatrist determined that JERRY was experiencing symptoms of Schizophrenia.
When Jerry's mother (MAMA) and father disagreed with one another over the need for JERRY to receive treatment, ultimately Mama would forcibly bring JERRY home from the hospital "Against Medical Advice."
35 years later, having survived with a dependency on his younger brother, EDWARD and MAMA , JERRY tries to come to terms with the consequences of his life-debilitating diagnosis.
With the news that his days on Earth may be numbered, JERRY embarks on a final mission to fantastically share the meaning of Jupiter with others, in hopes of saving the world.
Jerry of Jupiter celebrates the potential of every individual.
Jerry's remarkable journey will raise mindfulness to the adversity some approaches to mental illness can cause an individual, while in turn celebrating the power of community and self-determination.
Partial funds generated from the film will support Re-Mind Project initiatives and partner programs, creating lasting, ever-expanding impact.
"The day this story happens, the world immediately becomes a better place."
