LO-FI Generation: Quiet City TONIGHT!
9 February 2011
This rarely seen masterpiece is perhaps my highlight of our LO-FI film season, at FACT. Produced on a budget of just $2500, Quiet City is a film that shows us how far a piece of string can be stretched. In 2007, Stepehen Holden in the New York Times dubbed the picture, Beautiful! A Fully Realized Work of Mumblecore Poetry." A subtle romance Quiet City is a contemplative widescreen experience that views its landscape -- the borderline-industrial hipster neighborhoods of Brooklyn, N.Y. -- with painterly patience.\r\n
