The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA), a leading association for the nation's three million American citizens of Greek ancestry, and countless Philhellenes, will be participating in the launch of the summer comedy, "My Life in Ruins" featuring Nia Vardalos, star of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."


"We're excited to see Nia return to the big screen," said AHEPA National President Ike Gulas.  "We're also glad to see this movie focusing on the history and beauty of Greece and hope audiences will leave excited to make Greece their next vacation trip."


According to Gulas, AHEPA chapters will participate in advance screenings in 23 cities across North America this week.


"We're thrilled to play a role in helping to generate interest and create awareness about the nationwide release of the movie," said Gulas.


Nia Vardalos thrilled audiences in her 2003 blockbuster hit "My Big Fat Greek Wedding." In her new movie, she plays a young Greek American woman who attempts to change her lackluster life by journeying to Greece to find her "kefi" (mojo). This feel-good summer movie is sure to delight all audiences.


"I can't imagine anyone in the Greek American community missing this movie," said Gulas. "Nia is a funny and talented actor in addition to being a great representative of the Greek American community. Through her characters she helps translate the spirit of humor, love and family that makes our community so unique and special."


Also starring in "My Life in Ruins" are Richard Dreyfuss, Alexis Georgoulis, and Rachel Dratch. "My Life in Ruins" opened in theaters nationwide on June 6, 2009. AHEPA will be joining with FOX/Searchlight Pictures for over 20 advance screenings, between June 2 and June 4, in major cities across the country and Canada, including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, Miami and Montreal. AHEPA Headquarters in Washington, DC encourages all members and supporters to contact their local chapter leadership to find out the time and location of the advance screening in their area. Seating is limited for these events, so act quickly.
