"Studio with a View" is a short film chronicling the first two years of the Covid pandemic from the perspective of an apartment window in New York City’s Chinatown. The film captures life as it unfolds on the city block below, home to a police precinct and located in a neighborhood stigmatized during the pandemic.
Conceived as a visual poem, the film evokes themes both small and large, above all human resilience in the face of large-scale crisis.
"Studio with a View" is currently finishing its festival run. It is scheduled to play at the Queens World Film Festival in April 2024. For schedule & tickets go here
