Comedy “Three-Fifty” is a hit on the film festival circuit, European cable, Asian cable and now, in the classroom.

Though presented as comedy, “Three-Fifty”‘s theme of privacy rights, dishonesty, consequences and redemption stimulate discussions.

“Three-Fifty”  and it’s Teacher’s Guide have been chosen by varied instructors.  On the security and privacy rights side “Three-Fifty” was chosen by an instructor for a Post-Naval Academy  course in surveillance.    On the artistic side, a composer chose it to enhance his residency at Maharishi University.

“Three-Fifty” next festival stops? Lithuania’s Vilnius Comedy Festival

Posted on Updated on

Lithuania is home of Vilnius Film Festival and this year Vilnius decided to          create Vilnius Comedy Film Festival and take the laughs out to the people.  “Three-Fifty” will screen in three (3) Lithuania cities in the next few weeks.   Which cities? So glad you asked.  Here is a map of the cities so you can follow along…

Lithuania has special significance for me (Melinda Augustina) as my first college level acting professor was from Lithuania.  He came to America as a young child when his family was fleeing Europe in WWII.  His name was Joseph Daubenas.  He was TOUGH — we were hopelessy naive.  We loved him and realized (somewhat) how lucky we were for him to have chosen to teach in Kansas City for a few years while working on his PhD.   He had studied and taught at American Academy of Dramatic Arts and acted and directed in New York for many years working a lot with Harold Clurman and orignating some roles Off-Broadway.   In one article Daubenas was called a “Tasmanian Devil” by a reporter who watched him direct a rehearsal in New York City. (Tasmania is pretty far from Lithuania, but it’s still a fun reference.)   One of his television roles was as a Mad Scientist — and that he was.

We are honored that “Three-Fifty” will screen in Lithuania and enjoying this great lesson that energy eventually returns from where it came.   And so we sign off with the Lithuanian National Anthem and photos of their beautiful country. Thank you, Lithuania.  😉  http://bit.ly/1aERfs
