STORY

queenssubway03xLIONEL POWELL, THE TREEMAN, GREW UP JUST DOORS DOWN FROM JAY-Z IN THE INFAMOUS MARCY PROJECTS IN BROOKLYN SURROUNDED BY GANGS, DRUGS AND VIOLENCE. AS A BOY HE TURNED TO THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF ANIMALS AND INSECTS TO COPE WITH THE MADNESS IN THE WORLD; AND TREEMAN WAS BORN. DEDICATED TO HELPING OTHERS THROUGH HIS CHARACTERS AND CONSTANT VOLUNTEERISM, WE FOLLOW TREEMAN AROUND THE U.S. AS HE STRUGGLES TO SURVIVE AND ULTIMATELY TO FACE HIS PAST.

OUR JOURNEY WITH THE 10FT TREEMAN TAKES US THROUGH THE FOREST, THE SUBWAYS OF NEW YORK, THE LAS VEGAS STRIP, THE BEACHES OF LOS ANGELES, THE PLAYBOY MANSION, THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE AND MORE AS WE VISIT WITH ARTISTS, PERFORMERS, PHILANTHROPISTS, CHILDREN, AND EDUCATORS EXPLORING HUMAN NATURE TOGETHER. TREEMAN PERFORMS ON COMEDY CENTRAL’S BROAD CITY, THE AMC FREAKSHOW, WITH THE TREY WHITFIELD CHOIR, HE EVEN RIDES A SKATEBOARD IN HIS “BIG SHOES”.
