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.
