This documentary film captures the core of New York City on a human scale, focusing on the work of eight widely varied performing artists: A dancer, a concert pianist, an actress, a Noh performer, a multi-instrumentalist, a tabla virtuoso, an organist and a singing poet. Manhattan: The provocative, dense and iconic home to 8 million human stories, ever changing and often over-whelming to countless masses of visitors. Often-unseen and surprising images of the city’s unique atmosphere lend an evocative dimension to the very personal glimpses into the lives woven throughout the film. This rare view of Manhattan’s creative heart powerfully conveys the intensity and scope of the city that is both humanistic and intimate.
