This is a 5.5-minute short film from over 55 years ago and the director is the very prolific Stan Brakhage when he was still in his mid-20s, pretty early in his career. It is not his usual boring style, but not much interesting either. Basically this film is a collection of recordings from a city, some from outside, some through a train window. There are almost no people in here, just buildings, but sadly this silent film is not interesting in terms of architecture either. I was pretty generous here with the voting, but honestly, there is still no real reason to watch this film and I'm glad it did not run any longer. Not recommended.
