United States | 2019 | Manfred Kirchheimer The NY Times calls Manny Kirchheimer “an indispensable New York filmmaker, a noticer and listener without peer.” The latest “city symphony” by this 88-year-old documentarian is a snapshot (actually a series of snapshots) of a vanished NYC, set to music by Ravel, Bach, Eisler, and Count Basie. Culled from candid, b&w footage of kids, grown-ups, and neighborhoods shot on 16mm film by Kirchheimer and Walter Hess between 1958 and 1960, this evocative work captures urban life lived at a pace vastly different from today’s. “An uncommonly gentle portrait of New York life…Greatly alluring.” –Filmmaker Magazine.
