Chris Weitz Meets Bernice

Last Thursday, Center Players’ President Bernice Garfield-Szita was invited by Rita Dentino, head of Casa Freehold, to attend a special showing of the Oscar-winning film A Better Life in New York City. After the showing, Bernice met the film’s director, Chris Weitz, renowned for directing The Golden Compass and The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Bernice was charmed by Weitz’s down-to-earth demeanor and was thrilled when he gave permission for Center Players to run A Better Life at no charge during the Latino Film Festival held in our theater this summer. The film,  about the difficult and anonymous life of undocumented workers, should strike a chord in our diverse community.
