The (Steel) City of the Future
Presented by Salon member Ben Hernstrom
plus Allegheny Observatory short
Thursday, Dec. 6
Local Filmmaker Ben Hernstrom will present his 10 min. documentary on the current efforts to revitalize downtown Pittsburgh. Produced for Current TV (www.current.com) the piece features interviews with Councilman Bill Peduto, John Valentine (The Downtown Neighborhood Association), and Dan Onorato.
Preceding these will be a "visual prospectus" by member Dan Handley on his proposed documentary on the historic Allegheny Observatory.
Bill Peduto and John Valentine are scheduled to attend. (Dan Onorato and the Cultural Trust's Veronica Corpuz will hopefully attend as well, but at the time of writing could not be confirmed.)
