New York premiere

Julia Heyward’s long-form cinematic observation captures film shoots in a downtown alley seen through the artist’s bedroom window, simulating the real-time suspension of belief over the course of a full day. The full 1,440-minute work will screen continuously in the Museum’s film lobby.

Organized by Kathy Brew, Guest Curator, with David Neary, Festival Manager.

Doc Fortnight 2017 is supported by the Annual Film Fund.
