Welcome Suzi Yoonessi to the Tour!

After a great first screening of Dear Lemon Lima with its producer, Jonako Donley, we are happy to welcome Suzi Yoonessi to the tour. Suzi is the director of Dear Lemon Lima and will be travelling with the film along the Southern Circuit. And while we are sad to see Jonako go, we are very excited to have Suzi on the tour! Her first screening will be at 7:00 PM Tuesday, September 14, 2010 at Madison-Morgan Cultural Center.

Suzi Yoonessi's first feature film, Dear Lemon Lima, premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Dear Lemon Lima, was developed with the support of an ITVS Feature Development Grant, a FIND Kodak Grant and a Tribeca Film Institute post-production grant.
