Leonard Horowitz

New York, 9 AM () 16mm, black and white, 2.5 min

Genre: Experimental

Note: Project twice: 1st at 24 fps; 2nd at slowest speed available. The sound should be a radio tuned to an all-news station. This film was shot one day after the New York subway fares went from 20c to 30c. Many demonstrations and much confusion resulted. I went out early next morning to a particularly troubled corner (34th & 7th) to film possible protests, but true to form, New Yorkers had accepted the increase. I stared at the people emerging from the subway hole, waiting for the lights to change, obeying the traffic cop, the buses and generally absorbing the early morning (for me) winter grayness. You can see this reflected in their faces. I just pointed the camera, held it steady, stared through the viewer and squeezed the trigger for 3 minutes. --L. H.
