A Letter From Greenpoint (Re:Voir DVD)

Sale Format(s): DVD PAL

In February 2004, after 30 years of my life in SoHo, I made a decision to leave SoHo and move to Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This video is about what it feels like to leave a place in which one has spent more time than any other place, and which was also the place of my family life. I am somewhere else now. It#s about beginning of growing roots in a new place, new home, with new friends, new thoughts, experiences.

This video is also about video. When in 1949 I began filming with my Bolex, it took me fifteen years to really master it so that my Bolex would do for me what I wanted. When in 1987 I got my first Sony camera I thought it would be different. But no. Only today, after working with the video camera for fifteen years, I feel like it had become an extension of my eye, my body, "A Letter from Greenpoint" being my first real video work.
