MEN AT LUNCH

DIRECTOR: Seán Ó Cualáín - IRELAND

This remarkable documentary explores the untold story behind “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper,” one of the most iconic images of the twentieth century. Anonymously published in 1932 in the New York Herald Tribune, the photograph of immigrant workmen taking their lunch perched on a girder high above New York City on the 69th floor of Rockefeller Center symbolized an era. After exhaustive research, including interviews with archivists, photographers, and historians, Cualáín eventually uncovers compelling evidence that a few of the photo’s subjects may have roots in the small village of ... Part homage, part investigation, this is the beautiful tale of an American icon, an unprecedented race to the sky, and the immigrant workers who built New York City. (80 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Maírtín Ó Cadhain: King of Words (06)
