Mathematically Alive at the New Jersey Film Festival

Back in late September, when the air was a little warmer and the Mets were still clinging to first place, I had the pleasure of meeting Katherine Foronjy at the launch party for Dana Brand's terrific book. Kathy is one-half of the team that produced Mathematically Alive - A Story of Fandom, which documents the agony and the ecstasy of being a Mets fan.

This weekend the film will be screened at the New Jersey Film Festival at Rutgers University. The information is below:

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

Mike, I just watched an advance copy of Mathematically Alive. It is even better than I dared hope it would be. The filmmakers have captured the spirit of Mets fans to an astonishing degree. It literally brought tears to my eyes. I urge Mets fans to get down to Rutgers to see this film this weekend. As they say, run, don't walk.

It's hard for me to get there. is a dvd available?

Dana - I urge them to stop at a bookstore along the way to pick up a copy of your book, too (which I actually will review here soon).
Al - I don't think there is one yet, but I'll check on it.

No, there isn't a DVD yet. The film is being shown at these festivals so that they can get a distributor who can get the films into theatres and who can get somebody to eventually issue a DVD. At this point, the only way to see the film is to go to the festival.

I missed the NJ Film Festival. When and where is the film showing again?

Chis - Keep an eye on their web site:

If I hear anything I will post it.

Dear Mike,

I hope you haven't forgotten the real Met Fans in section 1. Mike Cougar, Gary, Woody,Danny,and Fuzzy have spent more time in Shea Stadium then anyone else. These are the true fan.

Thanks from,
