Pittsburgh, PA, April 2, 2008 — Writer, director and producer Mark Bussler has produced a documentary film about inventor and engineer George Westinghouse.
“Westinghouse” is a feature-length documentary that the filmmakers say features rare and never before seen footage, industrial films and photos previously buried deep within the Westinghouse archives.
“George Westinghouse is possibly the most important American of all time who has been lost to history… Today the world is electrified at a rate never before seen in human existence and most power is still generated by methods that were around 100 years ago. George Westinghouse is the role model that America’s students need today to face the engineering trials of the future,” said Bussler.
The film is available on DVD via preorder on Amazon.com and will be on sale at Internet retailers and retail stores nationwide on April 8th. Additionally, “Westinghouse” will premiere on screen at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on April 13, 2008.
