American Documentary Film Festival screen gems: Ordinary Joe

American Documentary Film Festival screen gems:

Ordinary Joe

Joe Sciacca is a regular guy – a beer drinking, blue-collar roofer and Vietnam War veteran from Long Island, New York – an ordinary Joe by all appearances. But contrary to appearances, this “Ordinary Joe” has a life purpose that proves to be anything but average. Driven by complex motives, Joe annually returns to Vietnam, traveling its back alleys and country roads, seeking out the poor, diseased and disabled, and offers them his unique brand of aid and hope. By taking a “do-it-yourself” approach this brash New Yorker has become an unlikely champion to a far away and seemingly forgotten people. The film, Ordinary Joe is his story.
