Scandinavian American Theatre: Patriarch

TONIGHT MAY 2nd: Free Reading! Free Wine! Badass Cast!

PATRIARCH; Written by Juha Jokela, Translated from Finnish by Eva Buchwald and Directed by Eddie Shieh

Scandinavia House, 58 Park Ave (at 38th St); Opening reception 7pm. 

"Upon their retirement Heimo and Virpi move to France. Yet, Heimo finds it impossible to settle into a life of leisure. Despite Virpi’s resistance, he is determined to go back to Finland to see if there is one more service he can perform for his country. Their return disrupts the lives of the couple and their children, calling to the surface tensions and suppressed feelings that have accumulated over the years. Intergenerational conflict comes to a head when all that has been left unsaid comes bursting out."

The Classifieds for Visa Signature

So there was this one time I got paid to pretend I like Sebastian Beacon and hang out in a cabin in the woods. Not a bad way to spend a weekend...

Happy Hour coming home to New York

NYC Premier Screening at BAFF at Tribeca Cinemas November 9th (link!), the 21st at the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival (more links!), and late November at the NY No Limits Film Summit (ran out of links...). 

Also, the short was nominated for three Mavrick Movie Awards- Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Actress (that one was me).  

Taxi Brooklyn. Maybe actually seen in Brooklyn

Luc Besson's formerly French-only Brooklyn-based action/comedy has been recently been acquired by NBC and may possibly air this summer.  Based on Besson's Taxi franchise and produced by Gary Scott Thompson, I shared the day with the dynamic and very silly duo Jose Zuniga and James Colby. 

So somewhere around episode 11 you can watch me wrap up a crime scene in a terribly authoritative trench coat. But hopefully not the part where I accidentally threw my pen at the dead guy. 

Playing DETECTIVE JAMEE LANISTER. 

Happy Hour: Trailer

A tough and beautiful short, directed by Gretl Claggett, based on her true story and poem, and narrated by Julianne Moore. 

Playing The Woman: The keeper of all these secrets.

The Vast Mystery of Who You Are

A Reading of Kim Yaged's new work, The Vast Mystery of Who You Are through IATI Theatre's Play Development Program, Cimientos. 

"...an irreverent, hard-hitting exploration of love via sex parties and philosophical sparring about the nature of relationships and death via the sudden passing of a family friend. The play might be considered a sexual romp because of its humor and boldness, but is also poignant and daring, unafraid of addressing provocative issues while not always coming down on the politically correct side of the conversation. The play’s Bravery stems from its ability to say what many of us are thinking but too embarrassed to say. Its Controversy spawns from the possibility these things are better left unspoken. And its hope is that by examining some of the ugly, weak places in ourselves we might confront our own vulnerabilities in order to learn how to better empathize with the vulnerabilities in others."

Act 1: German Tranny...

Big Apple Film Fest

Two projects screening next month at the 9th Annual BAFF... First, on Saturday the 17th at Tribeca Cinemas, Nick Flint's BRIDGE:

"A suspense/thriller about the toxic relationship between a Manhattan executive, Gary, and his wife Meredith. Locked together in a downward spiral of lies and bitterness, Meredith is on the brink of suicide and Gary on the precipice of murder. When Gary's plans a weekend getaway to their house in the woods kill her, the last days of their relationship play out in a way neither expects ... and both may just get what they have been wishing for."

-Kind of just playing myself. Like a "Cameo" as one might call it...

And on Sunday the 18th as part of the Experimental Program, Judd Blaise's PATIENCE:

"A Cryptic arrangement of mundane objects lie scattered about abandoned shores, while shifting voices speak of unbuilt monuments, magical seas, and Napoleon's place in the history of solitaire. A game of memory, played with unexpected souvenirs, found footage projections, and multiple decks of cards."
