Mais Cartões Postais para Clara

DSC07393 smPiazza del Popolo, Roma

Dear Clara,

I am in Roma now, after a long trip from Portland by car to little Stanberry Missouri, where I shot a film with some friends and then went on to the St. Louis Film Festival where I showed my last finished film, Coming to Terms, and was given, along with director Oliver Stone, a “Lifetime Achievement Award” for fifty years of filmmaking.  Yes, I am kind of old!  And then I flew here to Rome for a conference where I gave a talk, and showed a film I’d shot here in Italian in 2007 by the title La Lunga Ombra.

From here I will travel to Bologna, Milano, Istanbul, London, Paris, Brussels, perhaps Rotterdam, and then to Madrid and Lisboa, before I return to America and a few weeks in New York.  I hope in the time I am in Lisboa that I might see you.  It is important for both of us that we have a chance to again know one another.   So I hope your mother, Teresa, will understand and let it happen.  Though, being honest, I suspect she will not.  A deep problem of hers.

I send along these “postcards” from my travels and hope you enjoy them.

Amo-te

Teu pai,

jon
