Mais Cartões Postais para 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.
