Bungalow Film To Be Shown At National Museum
The film “The Bungalows of Rockaway” is going to Washington. The documentary, which has been seen in screenings from New York to Detroit to Rotterdam in the Netherlands, will now be shown in our nation’s capital this summer.
The film’s director and co-producer, Jennifer Callahan, emailed The Wave with the news last week that the National Buildings Museum will be including “Bun-galows” in a new exhibition in July.
“It will be screened as part of a new exhibition they are opening this spring, about home in the U.S.,” said Callahan. “I’m really honored that this film will be part of an exhibition thinking nationally about domestic space.”
The museum is just four blocks from the National Mall. According to its website it is “America’s leading cultural institution devoted to the history and impact of the built environment. We do this by telling the stories of architecture, engineering, and design.”
“The Bungalows of Rockaway” premiered at the Museum of the City of New York, and then shown on PBS in 2010. It has been screened at the Queens Museum of Art, the Detroit Jewish Film Festival and the Architecture Film Festival, Rotterdam. It will be shown at the Municipal Archives in Manhattan on April 18 and at by the Historic Districts Council later this spring.
