BIFF - "May In The Summer"

    Cherien Dabis is a Palestinian American director, producer, screenwriter, and actor. When her debut feature-length film, Amreeka, was released in 2009, she was named one of Variety magazine's "10 Directors to Watch."

Her new feature, May in the Summer, is a culture clash drama-comedy and is tonight’s opening night film at the 9th Annual Berkshire International Film Festival.

In the film, May Brennan (played by Dabis) returns from New York City to her childhood home of Amman, Jordan for her wedding. Shortly after reuniting with her sisters and their long-since divorced parents, myriad familial and cultural conflicts lead May to question the big step she is about to take.

Cherien Dabis is in The Berkshires ready for the screening at BIFF tonight and she joins us, now.

    Popular actress, Annie Potts, played - and this is really cherry-picking from her numerous credits - Mary Jo Shively for sevens season on the CBS series, Designing Women and Janine Melnitz in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. She received a Golden Globe nod for her work in Corvette Summer and voiced the memorable Bo Peep in Pixar’s Toy Story I and II.

Potts is currently playing Berthe in The Tony Award Winning Broadway Revival of Pippin at The Music Box Theatre.

Pippin has a book by Roger O. Hirson and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. This revival is directed by Diane Paulus and features sizzling choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and breathtaking acrobatics by Les 7 Doigts de la Main. Gypsy Snider helmed the Circus Creation and the choreography is by Chet Walker.

Oh Hai, Greg Sestero - "The Room" Actor At The Linda 3/1

        The Room is a 2003 independent romantic drama film starring Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed, and produced the feature - using his own money.

The Room is also completely ridiculous - with characters who show up and disappear without any conventional attention to their development, ludicrously unnatural dialogue, and footage reused - obviously - in more than one scene.
