    Wonderful Film Festival. Thank you to all your staff for being so friendly and helpful. Thank you also for recognizing True Drama with gold. It is a very beautiful statue and look forward to sending photos.

    It was an extreme honor for me. Naples is where Italia Pennino, my Italian grandmother is from. I know she would be happy the film was acknowledged by her home town. I do know she would have been angry if it wasn't though so I can't take full credit. More importantly, the people who run the film festival understand Italian Neorealism more than me. I am flattered they saw that in my humble little movie. Thank you.
