Lost Landscapes of New York Rick Prelinger

Film index A to Z

Lost Landscapes of New York mixes home movies by New Yorkers, tourists, and semi-professional cinematographers with outtakes from feature films and background “process plates” picturing granular details of New York’s cityscape. The combination of intimate moments, memories from many New York neighborhoods, and a variety of rare cinematic perspectives forms a 21st-century city symphony whose soundtrack changes each time it is shown. Audiences make the soundtrack — they are invited to comment, to ask questions and to interact with one another as the screening unfolds.

Presented in collaboration with the labdoc (Le laboratoire de recherche sur les pratiques audiovisuelles documentaires)
