Benefit for CHILE: Film screening of Hotel Marconi
Thursday, March 11th at 7:00 pm
I want to invite you for the film screening of Hotel Marconi; a Chilean movie made last year based on my homonymous book of poetry, Hotel Marconi. The film was made by Chilean filmmakers Juan Carlos Mege and Camilo Echegoyen, and we are asking for $3 to $5 donation to send Mege's family in Chile and the community of Penco where they live, which was severely affected by the recent earthquake in Chile.
Poet Paul Dresman will read some of his translations of the book—reprinted in 2006 in a bilingual edition—and talk about the film and the book.
You can see a preview of the movie in the following website: www.hotelmarconi.cl
If you can join us and help us to support some of the Chilean families affected by the earthquake, I would really appreciate it. Please, forward this message and let people know. Thanks,
