Summary:
A bridge under construction overpowers the composition of this promotional poster for this film, "The Bridge." This is a later version of a poster originally printed in 1954. Inspired by a true story, and filmed with local, "natural actors," it recounts the efforts of a small flood-prone community. Neighbors organize themselves and collaborate to build a bridge to resolve their chronic problem. This documentary was shown in the Venice Film Festival and the Edinburgh international Film Festival where it was awarded honorable mentions. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
