Summary
In 1920, photographer Paul Strand and painter-photographer Charles Sheeler, who had acquired a French 35mm Debrie movie camera, collaborated on a short non-commercial art film, no titled Manhatta. They began to shoot in lower Manhattan, working without scenario or script. Many of the scenes were made from the upper floors of skyscrapers in order to emphasize the geometric character of the city's architecture and to suggest the ant-like character of its population. In their press release, Strand wrote that they had tried to "register directly the living forms in front of them and reduce [them] through rigid selection ... to their most intensest [sic] terms of expressiveness ... " to capture the "elusive spirit" of New York, without resorting to "artifice or photographic trickery". 2K restoration from 35 mm 1.33:1 black & white silent 16 fps; new music by Donald Sosin
