by Kevin Carey and Mark Hillringhouse, filmmakers.

Ancestor's Song
Maria Mazziotti Gillan


This presentation features Maria Mazziotti Gillan reading from her forthcoming collection of poetry, Ancestor’s Song, along with a screening of Kevin Carey and Mark Hillringhouse’s documentary about Gillan, All That Lies Between Us.

Blending interviews, poetry, photography, and music, the film is a moving account of Gillan’s life and work. An award-winning author and poet, Gillan’s upbringing in an Italian-American community in Paterson, New Jersey, inspired much of her writing and led her to establish innovative literary ventures in that city, including the Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College.

All events are free and open to the public. The John D. Calandra Italian American Institute is at 25 W. 43rd Street, 17th floor (between 5th & 6th Avenues) in New York. RSVP by calling 212-642-2094. Please note that seating is limited and we cannot reserve seats.
