Surviving Eden premiere at Pipers Alley Cinema

Last night was the The Chicago premiere of Surviving Eden an Pipers Alley Cinema.

Jayne Lynch, Greg Pritikin (writer,director), Cheri Oteri, Michael Panes showed up.
Bill Zwecker had the honors of doing a Q&A session onstage after the movie.

SURVIVING EDEN, an independent film written and directed by Chicagoan, Greg Pritikin. is a sardonic send-up of reality television and the culture that devours it.  In the tradition of Waiting for Guffman and Take the Money and Run, a documentary film crew captures the pitfalls and pratfalls of fame as reality show winner Dennis Flotchky (Michael Panes) is thrust into the whirlwind world of instant celebrity.  Chicagoan Jayne Lynch and Cheri Oteri head the cast which also includes Peter Dinklage, Sam Robards and John Landis.

The after party was held at Spoon on Wells Street. I wish I could have made it but I had other obligations. :-(
