Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Urban wanderings inspire these six experimental films from a collage of movie trailers found outside a Brooklyn theater, to an evocation of an Uruguayan poet's life as a bookkeeper, to a compendium of vox populi interviews gleaned from city streets. Created over 10 years, this collection reveals the urban experience with verve and insight. Films include: "Trailer Trash" (5 min., 2008) A skewed take on detritus: film trailers are rescued from the trash and painted, holding up a funhouse mirror to the industry of expectations. "Collision of Parts": (15 min., 2010) An excavation of the concept of montage: small moments public and private brush up against each other, creating a charged tapestry of the immediate. "Sueldo/Licensia (Salary/Leave) (8 min., 2010) An adaptation of two of Mario Benedetti's poems using Montevideo, Uruguay as a melancholic backdrop. "A Year" (25 min., 2006) A tattered and unflinching diary film - video journal entries mix with abstract film images in Brooklyn, New Orleans and beyond. "Brooklyn Promenade" (3 min., 2001) A walk after 9/11 allows the filmmaker's children to reflect on what just happened. "Happy?" (19 min., 2000) "Are you happy?" This simple query, asked of hundreds of passers-by in NYC, led to a series of ruminations about the passage of time and the nature of contentment.

Bonus: "Cuadro por Cuadro" (Frame by Frame) - Made with Lynne Sachs (8min., 2009) A documentary of a workshop taught by the filmmaker at the Fundacion D'Arte Contemporaneo, an artist's collective in Montevideo, Uruguay. Workshop participants pore over discarded films, one frame at a time.
