In only 42 months, engineers, politicians, architects, foundation workers and iron workers were able to construct the “bridge that couldn’t be built” across the straits of Mackinac, spanning 5 miles of some of the most treacherous waters in the world. Filmmaker-Producer Mark Howell takes you back to the 1950’s and presents in living color the story of how the Mackinac Bridge became a reality, and one of Michigan’s greatest icons. This documentary includes extremely rare archival 16 mm color footage and audio recordings of Dr. Steinman (Designer of the Mackinac Bridge) and other key individuals who played important roles in the building of the bridge. The program is both fun and educational for all ages. For more information, please contact Mighty Mac Films through our web site, www.mightymacfilms.com
