All the lonely people…………
An “invisible man’s” every move is being watched. The quadrants of the secreted camera capture his exploits from dawn to dusk.
An original soundtrack fleshes out this tender, poignant portrait of a lonely, aging man, living on the fringe.
Thanks to Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Director of Culture and Tourism Theresa Osborne, Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer, State Senator Serphin Maltese and the star-of-the-day, Constance Del Vecchio Maltese, for their graciousness and kind words at the opening reception for Ms. Maltese’s American Women: A Portrait Series. Their presence made it a very special afternoon. Thanks also to all who attended and the top-notch, dedicated RAA staff that organized the exhibition and reception and that has made sTudio 6 look young and beautiful again. (Can you come to my house?) To Velvet Rose – you are sounding “mahvelous.” Brava.
Congratulations to James McKay, Seaside Interprise, Traditionally Yours, Common Ground and all those involved in Seaside Songfest. It was a great event. RTC, let’s do it again sometime.
