FILM SCREENING: ON THE WATERFRONT
Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, Manhattan
Elia Kazan’s acclaimed film depicts midcentury working conditions along the mob-controlled piers of the Hudson River. The film is based on a 24-part Pulitzer prize-winning series in the New York Sun exposing corruption and racketeering characterizing operations on the water. Noted architectural historian Francis Morrone will speak after the film about its significance in New York City history and culture.
