Ithaca is Gorges

Those in need of a plan this Vday, Jose and I would like to extend the invitation below to you. This guy we met at Cornell, Robert Lieberman, is currently in Manila for a Fulbright and will premiere his movie "Green Lights" — dubbed as "The Ithaca Movie" — in town at Megamall on Saturday.

The movie was shot entirely in Ithaca, our humble li’l town. (No, we’re not in the movie — it was made before we got here.) And if you’d like a glimpse of what we have to put up with every single day (hehe), "Green Lights" is your ticket. Nope, "Road Trip" — that teeny-bopper flick ala "American Pie" daw — isn’t the real deal: it features a non-existent "University of Ithaca" and wasn’t shot anywhere near here (which explains the absence of the gorgeous gorges Ithaca is known for). They shot it in North Carolina or someplace like that.

Anywayzz, we hope you can see it. And you all have a lovely, corny Valentine’s.

From Mr. Lieberman:

Hi, I just wanted to drop you a line and invite you to a screening of my newly completed feature film, "Green Lights" that's premiering on Sat. Feb 14th (Valentine's Day) at the Megamall Cinema 6 in Manila. (It's part of the "Pelikula at Lipunen" film festival).

This comedy was shot largely in Ithaca and you'll see plenty of familiar sights, including locations at Cornell.

For those who don't know me or haven't met me, I teach Physics at Cornell and I'm here in the Philippines on a Fulbright Lectureship in film and Creative Writing (Don't ask me to explain).

"Green Lights" (known also as "The Ithaca Movie") has been garnering lots of attention- if you go to the website below you can see reviews and download some of the music (all of which is performed by live musicians, 19 of them).

Martin Roumaldez informed me that the first 100 tickets will be free to Cornellians and their families.

Hope to see you.

On Sunday at Noon, two documentaries that I did for PBS will be showing in the same theater.

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
