Tuesday September 9th saw the South Philadelphia Older Adults Center welcome the team from EPX Stories. Independent film-maker John Pettit, along with Stories committee member Jennifer Baldwin and EPX Co-Chairs Darren Fava and Joseph F. Marino were on hand.  After Mr. Marino introduced the film festival, the two-fold presentation of similar documentary style footage and interviews of seniors ensued.  Twenty-six S.P.O.A.C. members participated and many were recorded, by Mr. Pettit, for the EPX Stories Trailer to be screened at the Avenue Art Auction and before the juried entries at Neumann-Goretti on November 14th. Look to this site for additional EPX Stories updates.
