“We all think we know Columbus.
The Bongiornos have created a very provocative film
that brings us closer to the historical Columbus and his legacy.
It challenges how we view historical figures and how we should view them.
The film puts history on trial and forces you to learn your history!”

Dr. Leslie Wilson, historian



"Columbus on Trial puts us all on trial
as it pushes us to think yet again about
Columbus and his New World history!”

Dr. Anthony Julian Tamburri,
Dean, The John D. Calandra Italian American Institute



"The film presents such a timely & relevant topic;
both for the deeper understanding of Columbus's contextualized place in our history,
and with respect to the broad topic of race relations and nationalism.
And an added bonus: you put an intelligent, assertive women in the mix!"

Emma Cortese, Ph.D., Nutley Family Services Bureau
