“And Scene” 100 Years of New York through Film

60 min program for Grades 4-12 

What’s better than watching 1 film about NYC? Watching 500 all at once! In this field trip, students will engage in an immersive 21-minute film depicting New York City life across time, boroughs, and cultures featured on 16 screens. This unique narrative film, created for the Museum’s 100th birthday, was crafted from clips of almost 500 feature films and documentaries from the 1920s to today. After the film experience, students will transform from the role of observer to creator as they take center stage in a collaborative New York City themed game of charades, clapperboard included! 

This field trip includes engagement with multiple excerpts of films captured across 16 screens and has the potential to become overstimulating. A couple of the films also include mild profanity. Please be advised and contact schoolprograms@mcny.org with questions.
