Additional Information

Archive Documentary Spotlight is a showcase for international documentaries that focus on contemporary social and political issues, explored in compelling cinematic terms.

Since 2006, film historian and archivist extraordinaire Rick Prelinger has presented 21 participatory urban history events to enthusiastic audiences in San Francisco, Detroit, Los Angeles, Oakland and at festivals throughout the world. For the first time, he is bringing his Lost Landscapes project to New York City.

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 will be provided by the audience. Viewers will be invited to comment, to ask questions and to interact with one another as the screening unfolds.

HD video transferred from 35mm, 16mm and 8mm, color & b/w, total running time approx. 85 min.
