BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD: PATERSON FALLS FILM FESTIVAL
This documentary tells about the life, works, and legacy of that gifted artist, Gaetano Federici (1880-1964), who depicted with historical realism many leading athletic, civic and religious leaders of the city between 1904 and 1957. Many of his works—whether larger-than-life statues, lunettes, pediments, or plaques in bronze or cast stone, studio pieces in plaster or clay—are examined in this documentary, with commentary from Passaic County Historian Edward A. Smyk and Federici biographer Flavia Alaya, with narration by William Paterson University Professor Vincent N. Parrillo. (53 minutes)
