The new film  ITHACA is based on William Saroyan’s novel and manuscript of The Human Comedy. based in stories of his youth during World War II in California. Filming is in Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia during the summer of 2014.

Director Meg Ryan chose Virginia over Ohio, which is to the northwest and not very California-like.

The amount of the Virginia Film Tax Credit awarded the movie production depends, in part, on how many local people are hired, so watch newspapers and websites for advertisements of speaking and more minor parts in ITHACA.

One of the songs the movie soundtrack was written by John Mellencamp and performed by Leon Redbone.
