On this day of remembering the 6 million Jewish lives that were lost during the Holocaust, I want to bring to your attention Swimming in Auschwitz, the fantastic documentary from filmmaker Jon Kean (C'89, Mask and Wig, Friars).

Per Jon, "The interwoven stories of six women provide a glimpse into life, spirit and survival at the notorious concentration camp, Auschwitz."

From May 2 - May 9, Jon will be attending the weekend
screenings at the Beverly Hills Laemmle's Music Hall in the evenings to lead Q and A's (and the women in the film will try to attend select screenings as well).

More at Jon's website

I just got an anonymous tip that supposedly, a major motion picture will be filming extensively on Penn's campus this summer.

Rumor has it that Transformers 2 will be shooting on Penn's campus. Could possibly make sense as the film will be produced by Wharton grad alum Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.

Anyone know anything about this? Comment below!

Robert GantDebuting tonight on here!, America's premium gay television network, Robert Gant (C'90, Penn Six) stars with Shannen Dougherty and John Rhys-Davies in Kiss Me Deadly.

Per Business Wire, the plot is as follows:

"Jacob Keane (Gant) is a photographer living the family life in Milan with his loving boyfriend, Paolo, and Julia, the daughter he shares with his lesbian friend, Kyra. When a young woman, Marta (Doherty), arrives from his past life, he is pulled back into the high-stakes world of international espionage. Together they must elude a mysterious enemy threatening to disrupt their now-quiet lives. Out actor Ian Roberts (Superman Returns) co-stars as the villainous Vigo, while John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings trilogy) plays the heroic Yale, a former colleague of Jacob and Marta."
videosWatch the trailer here


As to what he's up to now, Robert told me that he just wrapped:
  • a Lifetime movie called Special Delivery that will air in December for Lifetime with Lisa Edelstein of House and Brenda Song, one of the young Disney stars.
  • a part for a film for Spike TV called Mask of the Ninja.
Robert also recently appeared on the magazine cover of Instinct Magazine.

UPenn Hey Day
UPennHey Day 2008 happened on Tuesday this week and once again, judging from some of the facebook photos I've seen, craziness ensued!

videosWatch President Gutmann proclaim the once class of 2009 "juniors" now "seniors"!


videosAnd in case you missed it, watch President Gutmann proclaim last year's junior's "seniors" (and now practically graduates!)


As you'll see in both of the videos above, it is hard for President Gutmann to get decorum. I'm sure this always was and always will be the case.

A few weeks ago, we covered one Penn alum who had taken off his junior year to pursue a dream. Now I've got a story about another Penn alum who had taken off part of his junior year to also do something very meaningful.

For the spring of his junior year, Jim Goldblum (C'07, 34th Street) joined his brother Josh in New Orleans and followed the seniors of New Orleans' top public high school--the first to open after Katrina-- to learn the stories of community and dislocation. They then created a virtual yearbook from their documentary work, with 150 hours of video interviews, 500 photos, and robust maps and timelines. CNN said, of all the press coverage and all the documentaries, it was "one of the best of the best."

Check out their site here

Dr. Lisa CassilethLast month Penn's Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to the stars Dr. Lisa (Benke) Cassileth (C'92, M'97) was talking boob jobs with Rachel Ray.

Last night she spoke to Entertainment Tonight about some of the best non-invasive treatments to help people look better. Her segment, in which she commented on celebrities getting ready for the Cannes Film Festival, featured the use of Sclerotherapy: an immediate, quick and painless way to eliminate "spider veins."

Perhaps our DT Correspondent Felisha Liu (W'09) should report on this when she's in Cannes? ...Or maybe not.
UPenn
Dr. Lisa is currently filming a new episode of DR. 90210 today and tomorrow (she's already appeared on DR. 90210 twice!).

A few weeks ago, Parisa from last season's The Real World: Sydney came to Penn to sing with the Pennchants.

...If you were a fan of The Real World, you would know that Parisa is a good singer (and unfortunately had to deal with some immature roommates from her season)

So how did the Pennchants score this?

Apparently Parisa is a family friend of the group's President Adam El Sehamy (C'09) and she came down to Penn where the group arranged one of her songs. Pretty cool!

Mark CroninLast week my Penn reality-TV based posts had been centered around Roy Bank (C'94). Now I've got some news from another Penn reality TV big time producer Mark Cronin (Eng'86)...

VH1 recently announced that they are prepping another spinoff to Flavor of Love called I Love Money.

Per Variety, the new show will feature "past contestants from "Flavor of Love," "Rock of Love" and "I Love New York" squaring off against one another in a series of reality show competitions. While "Flavor" and its past offspring were constructed to help celebrities such as Bret Michaels and Flavor Flav find "love," the new show will focus on the pursuit of cash prizes."

It seems Mark's contestants won't be the only ones loving money.

Speaking of Love, have you checked out my Penn "Love Series" here?
