What do you get when you mix a sex addicts, a tourist, an immigrant and a psychic?

You get a new Penn alum film.

Film Producer and founder of Ibid Filmworks, Jody Girgenti (C'98) has made the festival rounds with her newly produced award winning film called Approaching Union Square.

The film is a collage of eleven tales capturing thirty-something New Yorkers struggling to find love and connection in the big city. Among the elegantly drawn characters whose lives briefly intersect on a New York City bus are a sex addict, a tourist, an Italian immigrant, and a woman newly awakened to her own psychic powers who senses imminent tragedy.

Some great quotes about the film:
Variety says, “thought-provoking” and “touches with skilled insight.”
A “startlingly accomplished debut … smart, confessional, rueful, funny and sad,” writes the Montreal Gazette.

Stay tuned for this film's TV premiere on the Sundance Channel in 2008!
