5. All Day Screening of 2001
Six locations in New York City and New Jersey will screen the powerful film 2001 by Wolfgang Staehle. Presented in partnership with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the screenings will be held at St. John the Divine Cathedral, Brooklyn Historical Society, Queens Museum, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Monmouth University. The dual-channel video was captured by two unmanned cameras set up by Staehle in Brooklyn with the intention of capturing the mundane going-ons of everyday life in New York City. He wound up capturing one of the most significant historical events in America’s history. The footage unfolds in real-time and will be screening from around 7:00am-8:30am until 7:00pm.
