The public is invited to attend a Centennial Conversation – A Panel Discussion with Filmmakers Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno, Jerome Bongiorno and Their Community Partners October 22 at 7 pm. Free. NYSS Member and 3-D artist Gerald Marks will participate. Please Note: Advance Registration Required.

Inspired in 1920 by Walt Whitman’s collection of poetry, “Leaves of Grass,” two artists, Charles Sheeler and Paul Strand, created a six-minute expressive film entitled Manhatta – a work many have described as America’s first avant-garde film.

Almost a century later, two Newark-based, award-winning filmmakers, Marylou
Tibaldo-Bongiorno and Jerome Bongiorno, have created a modern 3D interpretation of
the film in homage to both Manhatta and their home city, Newark. The newly released
six-minute, black & white film, New Work: Newark in 3D, A Centennial Film Commission by Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno and Jerome Bongiorno, premieres at the Newark Museum on September 23, 2009 and runs through January 10, 2010.

Set against the backdrop of one of the oldest metropolises in the nation, the Bongiornos’ film captures the vibrancy of present-day Newark, encompassing a cinematic arc from sunrise to sunset that emulates Strand and Sheeler’s historic imagery — from the city’s bustling business districts, port and transit hubs to its parks, grand public monuments, places of worship and impressive iron bridges. In response to the Museum’s centennial, the filmmakers captured the treasured landmarks that have graced Newark’s urban landscape for almost a century.
