A City Symphony Underground
In homage to classic documentaries such as Berlin: Symphony of a City (1927), by Walter Ruttman and Manahatta (1921), by Paul Strand and Charles Sheeler, A City Symphony Underground is arranged in movements to evoke the New York City Subway’s daily shifting timbre. Blending footage shot in 1905, six months after the subway opened, with present day scenes this film captures the spirit, energy and rhythms of the people and the textures and colors of this underground marvel, in all its gritty beauty.
