This documentary celebrates Ralph Modjeski, the Chairman of the Consulting Engineers for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Modjeski designed bridges that had significant impact on urban development and commerce. The film is a tribute to innovative engineering and to bridge workers during two eras of transit, taking a deeper look at the scientific mind and artistic soul of a Polish-born, Paris-trained immigrant who contributed to the building of a modern America.

Screened in conjunction with the exhibit "Building Bridges, Not Walls" during July and August at the San Francisco History Center, 6th Floor of the Main Library, and at the Canessa Gallery in North Beach. Presented in partnership with LaborFest.
