TWO INTERPRETATIONS - MANHATTAN RHAPSODY 
Short movie based on Georg Crumb music.


 
Dear Viewer,

  For many years, while commuting from Long Island to Manhattan I would admire one of the most  fascinating
  landscapes: Unifying the headstones of an old European cemetery in Queens with the beautiful 
  Manhattan skyscrapers in the distance. It seemed that almost no one else paid attention to the beauty of 
  the City as viewed through the Old World cemetery. The massive ancient headstones paired with shiny skyscrapers
  in the distance illustrate the perfect mix of harmony and the chaos that makes up a city.

  After ten years I found myself again in Manhattan. A few days stay in the city of endless Form was a total loss for me.
  The crowded colors, inarticulate sounds. The sons of those Form from ten years ago, multiplied by ten could not give 
  my "note-book camera" any place to start (my camera hid in my hands, not being able to find a blank space for 
  a moment of rest). 

  I was lost in the Form. Returning home, getting off the plane, I felt so discourged about the lost time! Damn! But  after
  reviewing the material I was pleasantly surprised by how my "notebook camera" had stared at my loss and provided
  excess.

  The project REFLECTIONS - Manhattan Rhapsody, Spellbound within the Form, presented below is the result of
  my fascination with the beauty of life's Forms of yesterday and today. 
 THROUGH OLD WORLD WE CAN SEE TODAY'S NEW WORLD.
