November 14, 7:00 pm — 8:30 pm. Westchester Italian Cultural Center - One Generoso Pope Place - Tuckahoe , NY 10707 United States. Produced by Carlo Magaletti with the assistance and financial support, in part, by the United Pugliesi Federation and the Society of Maria SS del Buoncammino di Altamura.

Premiere screening of the film/documentary The Icemen which analyzes the beginnings of the ice industry and attempts to explain why the Barese in the area cornered the market. Notice, we said "attempts" as we are not sure if it will ever be discovered why. The documentary shows clips of old icemen on horse and wagons, those alive today explain the business, as well as clips of Rockland Lake where the original ice was cut. In English. Light reception will follow.
