This is not a sight seeing film but a poetic journey through light and darkness reflected on the city of New York where I often found empty spaces and times like Ma in Japanese . You do not often see the people walking on the streets or in the buildings. But you may feel the air and the light are coming and going. It's not a deserted city, but full of energy that is there even without the people. You see the wind is blowing as the bubbles are floating over Wall Street, then up, up to the sky. The Sun sets under the Washington Bridge where all the cars are running slowly like ants shot from afar. The night falls down among the skyscrapers yet the horizon is still light.
Suddenly people are everywhere on 42nd street but they look like silhouette stands alone by the dark wall, or he same figure by the huge unpainted billboard. Later in the park he is reflected on the telephone booth. He still has no voice. Behind him the sound of a waterfall may be heard. The indoor gardens are awakening. The pants and the fruits are growing unde the artificial light and over the glass window. People are sleeping while the darkness prevails. A shadow of the silhouette-man casts over a tomb under the light from the window that is still brightening. (T.I.).
