New Work: Newark in 3D A Centennial Film Commission by Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno and Jerome Bongiorno
New Work: Newark in 3D is the latest project of the award-winning, Newark-based filmmakers Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno and Jerome Bongiorno and was commissioned by the Newark Museum. Inspired by the 1920 avant-garde film Manhatta, which traces a day in the life of early twentieth-century Manhattan from dawn until dusk, the Bongiornos short film captures the rich mosaic of iron bridges, verdant parkland, architectural treasures and lively street life that is present-day Newark. Shot in black-and-white 3D, from unusual vantage points, the film brings a new perspective to a city most people only see from the sidewalks and streets. It pays homage to known landmarks like Military Park and the grand Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart and shines a light on lesser known or hidden gems of the city as well. The films soundtrack—with its richly layered music and poetry created by Newark-based artists—gives one the feeling of being at the center of a diverse and dynamic metropolis.
