We recently discovered that ASMP/ONC Student member, Joni Lewanski’s film was screened at the 2014 Cleveland International Film Festival as part of the Ohio Shorts Program. It was also screened at the 2014 Indie Gathering where it received an Honorable Mention.
TOWER SYMPHONY is a brief tour of Cleveland’s Terminal Tower, from outside to inside, bottom to top. This documentary was created in the spirit of the city symphony films produced in the late 1920s, which is coincidentally when the Terminal Tower first opened its doors to tenants. Like its prototypes, TOWER SYMPHONY emphasizes patterns and movement of familiar and unusual perspectives set to musical accompaniment.
