About

New York City's Fulton Fish Market explodes with movement, sound and color between the hours of midnight and 7 AM, Monday through Friday in lower Manhattan. Fish hooks flail, crates are ripped open, and tens of thousands of fish are arrayed in ice as discerning retailers and restaurant owners make the rounds. This lyrical, visually vibrant documentary reveals a profoundly tactile material world tucked away in the shadow of the digital age. Hand made effects and a haunting, sparse soundtrack underline the chaos and beauty of this teeming market. "… blends scenes of the legendary waterfront market filmed in the early hours of the morning with hand-painted, emulsion-scratched abstractions turning the place into something beautiful and mysterious." Stephen Holden, New York Times, 2/27/04.

    35mm Films From the Film-Makers’ Cooperative

    Combining origin stories with elegies and alternative histories, as well as explorations of desire, scraps, emergence, and obsolescence, “Origins and Ends” presents an array of experiments with cinema’s standard gauge, the use of which is decidedly rare in avant-garde film.
