It’s part drama, part comedy, and all heart.
A portion of the proceeds from her film One Man’s Trash supports Philabundance.
This weekend you can meet the cast and help them make a difference.
The film seeks to draw attention to Philadelphia’s homeless population and the hidden talents waiting to be discovered.
As local actors and filmmakers John Giordano and Dennis Jeantet put the finishing touches on the film, they invite the community to be part of the process and solution.
“Philabundance is our official beneficiary, which is fantastic,” says filmmaker and actor John Giordano. “I always had her in mind as our beneficiary and also as our partner. I’ve always wanted to combine what I love to do with my passion for helping others.”
This Sunday, the filmmakers are hosting a Meet the Cast: Film and Charity Food Drive at the Rutledge Community Center in Delaware County.
They ask everyone to bring donations when they come to meet the stars and learn more about the film.
“It’s a character progression from someone who is disgusted with the homeless to someone who finds his true purpose in life to be helping the homeless,” says Giordano. “There’s a lot of comedy that emerges throughout.”
The film also stars actor John O’Hurley, who is expected to attend the event.
They hope to debut One Man’s Trash by the end of the summer.
