The Jarvis Conservatory honors this day with a special screening of A VISUAL HISTORY OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER. Recognizing the 20 year anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy on The World Trade Center, the Jarvis Conservatory collaborates with film director, Monte Diamond, to bring to the Napa Valley community free screenings of this poignant short film. A VISUAL HISTORY OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER is broken down into four sections: Four moments from the history of The World Trade Center set to the four movements of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's symphony "Scheherezade". "Scheherezade" means story-telling. And the World Trade Center generated a lot of stories - stories told by people who worked there, got married there, or came with their kids on holiday. The film's four stories set to the movements of "Scheherezade": The first is aspirational, showing the imagination and skill that went into making the buildings. The second story shows the Towers in a variety of films as they became part of the lore of New York filmmaking for over 27 years. In the third, given his love affair with the buildings, Phillippe Petit puts them and himself on the map with his spectacular feat of skill and daring as he tight-rope walks the span of the two structures. And in the Fourth, the collapse of the Towers brings out bravery and caring - the best of humanity on the worst of all possible days. Running time is 30 minutes. Directed by Monte Diamond. Four screenings. 1pm, 2:15pm, 3:30pm, 4:45pm Saturday, September 11, 2021 Jarvis Conservatory Admission is free with reservation. Admission to this event requires a reservation. Only online reservations accepted. No phone calls please.
