Genre: Documentary, Experimental

A day at the Fulton Street Fish Market in New York City. The noise and unceasing movement of trucks, hand carts, and workers. Filleting, weighing, crating, and the icing the fish in the wholesale fish houses. The winding down of the hectic pace of the market as it eventually dies. Only piles of rubbish, wooden crates, and a few seagulls punctuate the silence. --R. C.

Scenes From New York City Transit (1972) 16mm, color & b/w, 17 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Landscape & Architecture, Personal / Diary / Journal

Portrays the loneliness and alienation subway riders experience in the dirt and graffitti laden New York City subway. Screeching cars, pulsing escalators and moving platforms, nervous and stressed riders as they wait interminably or as they surge forward to compete for a seat during rush hour. The underground claustrophobia is finally relieved as the trains emerge above the ground and rattle to the end of the line. --R. C.

Rich and subtle tones of gray and black as defined by the shapes and forms of a New York City rooftop. This is contrasted with the movement of a pair of legs in a claustrophobic New York apartment as sounds from the street and neighboring apartments invade and finally dominate the setting. --R. C.
