Filmmakers Basia and Leonard Myszynski of sOlar eye communications are producing a documentary film about Ralph Modjeski and eight of his North American bridges and how these bridges urbanized American landscapes, transforming cities, cultures and commerce. A tribute to ingenuity and innovation, influence and progress from 20th century to 21st century engineering. Modjeski & Masters, Ralph’s founding company, celebrates its 120th anniversary, a company that has rehabilitated many Modjeski superstructures, preserving them for future generations.

Ralph Modjeski’s story has never been told on film and we would like to finally tell it!BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!

The project is currently fundraising. Four bridge stories exist: Huey P. Long, Bay Bridge, Ben Franklin & Mid-Hudson. CHICAGO MUST TELL ITS BRIDGE STORY and Modjeski’s impact on this region of America. Help fund this segment on GOVERNMENT BRIDGE (Rock Island)
