"Broadside: Emerging Empires Collide"
The geopolitical conflict between the English and the Dutch for control of trade dramatically shaped the world of the 17th century,
including the contested colony at the mouth of the Hudson River. Bruce Twickler of Docema, writer/producer/director of "Broadside",
a new docudrama, will discuss the project and screen a short documentary about the making of the film and its vivid animations and
historic recreations, and show excerpts from the production that tell the story of how New Amsterdam became New York.
Free with Museum admission.

"Broadside premier at MIT"
Join the MIT Club of Boston and Producer Bruce Twickler '67 at the Premier of "Broadside", a two hour film that will be aired on public
television beginning in October.
"Broadside" tells the story of the fiercest naval war in the age of sail. The rivalry between the British and the Dutch spanned oceans,
continents and empires. The film is cast in the actual houses, gardens and forts of the seventeenth century and uses 3D animations to
bring 1660 New Amsterdam and London to life. As those of you who attended the Club of Boston-sponsored showing of Twickler's
previous documentary film "Damrell's Fire", the technical sophistication is simply stunning. We are in for another treat!
Producer Bruce Twickler '67 will explain what went into the making of this engaging documentary. More background can be found at
