Homage to "Manhatta" Celebrates Newark

Monday, September 28, 2009

The movie "Manhatta" was released back in 1920. It was a silent, black and white film, only six minutes long, with ground-breaking photography that captured the rapidly expanding metropolis. Now, almost 90 years later, two filmmakers have created a modern homage to "Manhatta" that showcases their own bustling city just across the river -- Newark, New Jersey. Derek John has this report.

The film “New Work: Newark in 3-D” is on display at the Newark Museum through January 10th.
