Film: Bridging Urban America (87 min.) 2016

July 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm


Directed by Basia Myszynski and Leonard Myszynski
This biography celebrates Ralph Modjeski, the Chairman of the Board of Consulting Engineers for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Modjeski designed bridges that had significant impact on urban development and commerce. The film is a tribute to innovative engineering and to bridge workers during two eras of transit, taking a deeper look at the scientific mind and artistic soul of a Polish-born, Paris-trained immigrant who contributed to the building of a modern America. This is a relevant film that brings awareness about the deteriorating state of our bridges and how communities search for sustainable solutions to maintain, rehabilitate and preserve these critical parts of North America’s infrastructure.
Screened in conjunction with the exhibits “Building Bridges, Not Walls” during July and August at the San Francisco History Center, 6th Floor of the Main Library, and at the Canessa Gallery in North Beach.
