NYC Weights and Measures is a simple gathering of New York City street footage. Shot with a spring-wound 16mm Bolex on, above, and below the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn , this dreamy film explores the city's many moods, even including footage of the ticker tape parade for astronaut John Glen.
Length: 6 minutes
