Urban Caustic

Urban Caustic, 2003

solarized streets of the city

2002, 7:45mins, 16mm

This is my attempt to make a “city symphony film” in the tradition of Dziga Vertov (Man With a Movie Camera, 1929), Walter Ruttmann (Berlin: die Sinfonie der Großstadt, 1927), and then later the Echo Park Film Center’s youth projects (The Sound We See: Los Angeles, 2010, & Rotterdam, 2012).

Some parts shot on video, and then re-photographed onto 16mm film, and most others shot on 16mm. Hand-processed colour footage. This is a city symphony about Toronto, finished in 2002.

Watch film.
