Sometimes City (2010) DVD NTSC, color and b/w, 80 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

SOMETIMES CITY is a gritty and personal documentary portrait of Cleveland, Ohio. SOMETIMES CITY suggests the city's people, landscape, and decline. SOMETIMES CITY was conceived to include documentary, home movie, personal, and possibly fictional elements. SOMETIMES CITY originated from two different video installations with the intention that it would evolve into a film. As filmmaking progressed it became important to let different people speak, people that we do not usually hear from. I filmed a great deal and found what I would. The movie juxtaposes many scenes of residents and some performed music becoming kind of a "spare-parts scavenging of stories". The title comes from a poem by d.a. levy and part of one of his poems is read in the movie. SOMETIMES CITY was photographed during 2008 and 2009 using various consumer video formats, 16mm and Super 8 film. -- Tom Jarmusch
