Images of New York, Sounds of Barcelona


For over 30 years, Jim Jennings has filmed his city, New York. His films are more subtle than a simple urban portrait. They are often spontaneous filmings of a single location, street or district, seen (and filmed) far from reality. It is not the city he sees through the camera but its light and reflections. An exquisite chiaroscuro of details and rhythm recreated in a delicate interplay of spaces. His films are silent, yet they convey the city’s energy. In a spirit very akin to that of the filmmaker, artist Nad Spiro presents a live sound work made up of “field recordings” made mainly in Barcelona. [Screening in 16 mm]
