Newark in 3D

New Work: Newark in 3D was created by  Newark-based, husband and wife filmmakers Marylou & Jerome Bongiorno, as a commission for The Newark Museum’s centennial in 2009.  It was exhibited in a special gallery at Newark Liberty International Airport as its first art film installation. The film was also reinstalled at The Newark Museum for the Newark 350 celebration for all of 2016. 

Inspired by the 1921 avant-garde film Manhatta  and in the tradition of city symphony films of the 1920s and ‘30s, the Bongiornos' 6 minute 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 that have endured about a century or more and shines a light on lesser known or hidden gems of the city as well.

The film's richly layered soundtrack featuring Newark-based artists  —including the poetry of Jon Curley and the  music of the Newark Boys Chorus School and  the Cathedral Choir —gives one the feeling of being at the center of a diverse and dynamic metropolis.

David W. Leitner, millimeter magazine:

“Flawless 3D”

“Jerome Bongiorno's 3D cinematography is masterful” “I wonder if Cameron's Avatar, produced with no expense spared, will measure up to the success of New Work: Newark in 3D, if only as art.”

"Exceptional sense of immediacy...

a view not able to be seen with the naked eye."
