MEN AT LUNCH- LON SA SPEIR
2013/Ireland (67 min)
Director: Sean O Cualain    
           
The documentary tells the story of "Lunch atop a Skyscraper," the photograph taken during the construction of 30 Rockefeller Plaza that depicts eleven workmen taking their lunch break while casually perched along a steel girder  boots dangling 850 feet above the sidewalk, Central Park and the misty Manhattan skyline stretching out behind them.
For 80 years, the identity of the eleven men  and the photographer that immortalized them  remained a mystery. Part homage, part investigation, Men at Lunch is the tale of an American icon, an unprecedented race to the sky and the immigrant workers that built New York.
