Happy Birthday, America and Cape May: End of the Season

1976-81, 20:39 min, b&w and color, sound

Cohen captures the individuality and idiosyncracy of small-town living in Happy Birthday, America and Cape May: End of the Season, both of which profile the beach community of Cape May, New Jersey. In Happy Birthday, America, produced by Cohen and Video Repetorie as part of their grassroots television project, Cohen takes an affectionate, humorous look at the local Bicentennial Celebration of 1976. She returns to the seashore in Cape May: End of the Season, interviewing the retired vacationers who linger on after Labor Day. The good-natured relaxation of the elderly couples, interspersed with scenes of the empty beach, echoes the autumnal mood of the end of the season.

Happy Birthday, America: Editors: Maxi Cohen, Joel Gold, Bill Marpet, Esti Marpet, Dorene Hyman, John Trayna. Produced by Video Repetorie.

Cape May: End of the Season: Camera/Sound: Maxi Cohen, Joel Gold, Bill Marpet.
