Friends Annual Meeting: Making Movies in Maplewood

Bob Pusateri

Main Library – Monday, April 30 @ 7:30 pm. Filmmaker Bob Pusateri, a longtime Maplewood resident, will be guest speaker at the Friends of the Maplewood Library annual meeting. The meeting will also include a brief business session and election of officers.

Bob’s presentation will include a screening of one of his latest productions, PEZZONOVANTE (Big Shot), a short about a young girl who makes a deal with the mob. It was screened at the NY Short Film Festival at the world-famous Cinema Village in Manhattan last November, and it was presented at the Orlando Film Festival and other short film fests around the country. Working with a host of local actors and crew members, Bob functions as writer/director/producer/sometime actor and general factotum on his film projects. “I just really enjoy making movies,” he says.

The evening promises to be both entertaining and informative, and is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Thanks to Program Chair Anne Smith for arranging Bob’s presentation.
