A Poet Long Ago
About the Film
About the Director
Based on a story by Pete Hamill, two friends from a Brooklyn grammar school reconnect and realize the impact they and their work had on each other.
Diverse as he is talented, Bob Giraldi has directed everything from television commercials and documentaries to short films and feature films, including “Dinner Rush,” starring Danny Aiello, John Corbett and Sandra Bernhard, which appeared on a number of Top 10 lists and was selected for The Museum of Modern Art’s Films Series. His commercials and films reside in MoMA’s permanent collection, Baseball’s Hall of Fame, AICP permanent collection, Advertising Hall Fame and the Art Director’s Club alongside artists such as Andy Warhol, Annie Leibovitz, Mary Ellen Mark and Bruce Weber.
