"The City has inspired filmmakers from the beginnings of cinema. This quarter's film challenge asks Seattle filmmakers to create their own city symphony, a genre with roots that go back to the everyday images recorded by Auguste and Louis Lumière in the 1890s and came into being with MANHATTA in 1921. City Symphonies are motion pictures that capture the spirit and uniqueness of a city by assembling images of everyday life in that city. Use the city to explore ideas of reflection, space, rhythm and transformation."
Since moving to Seattle over a dozen years ago I have been fascinated by the close proximity of soft, fragile nature to industry and transportation infrastructures built of concrete and steel.
