Eleftheria Astrinaki, a doctoral candidate at Columbia University and an up-and-coming film director, will be producing a short film on August 20-28, 2005 in Manhattan and New Jersey. She invites all those interested in the cinema arts to participate in this short piece, in all areas of film production. In addition to enthusiastic and efficient volunteers, she is seeking the short-term use of a vehicle during the filming and production of the movie--about 3-5 days.

The film, "Call Me in the Morning," is about the personal journey of a PhD student in search of his disgraced and now insane academic father figure. The "crit" session for this film will take place at the beginning of October at Columbia University.

Astrinaki has received a number of academic awards and scholarships in her blossoming career, including a Fulbright Scholarship, scholarships from the Gerondelis and Kapetanakis foundations, teaching and film scholarships at Columbia University, and national scholarships in Greece. A native of Greece, she has studied in Athens and Prague, as well as in New York, and is fluent in several languages.

For more information or to volunteer assistance, contact director Astrinaki at 212 853 9821, 917 733 2541, [011-30] 6936800337 (Greece); email ea2167@columbia.edu
