Saint Petersburg, FL
This is a quick email to everyone who is attending OR is on the wait list for today's 4:00pm private screening of "The Missing Piece" with film director/writer Joe Medeiros in attendance.
I'm expecting a full house so, if you're on the wait list, I'm sorry to say there's not much hope for a seat. There will, as always, be some people who reserved a seats and then they aren't able to make it for various reasons but I'm expecting most people will be there. The seating is limited and fire codes won't allow us to overcrowd the theater.
By the way, the film's producer Justine Medeiros (Joe's wife) will also be attendance along with some people that appear in the film.
We'll have a Q&A session after the film followed by a very nice reception. Please do stay for the reception. We'll have plenty of great Italian food thanks to Chef Vincenzo D'arista. Mangia! Mangia! In addition to great pasta, there will be meat and cheese platters for sandwiches. There will also be desserts!
There will be a few bottles of wine at the reception in addition to water and sodas but if you have a favorite wine you'd like to share, feel free to bring it.
A few days ago, Joe Medeiros was at Temple University for an interview and his interview was recorded. The entire video is about one hour. Here's the link: http://www.templetv.net/shows/medium-close-up/joe-medeiros/
Enjoy your weekend! Next month's Cineforum Italiano will be August 12th. We'll be screening BENVENUTI AL NORD. This film was a big hit this year in Italy. Please join us! Here's the link for more information and to RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/passatempo/events/75139232/
