Scenes from New York in the 1960s. Four young people, friendship, jealousy, separation. Filmed in black and white, with an agile camera, without dialogue. Mark Rappaport’s early work was shot in 16mm on superimposed film material. Mark Rappaport’s instruction to the light controller in the “Movielab” copier: “Scenes are overexposed. Please try hard to get this to look good.” The camera and optical sound negative was found by Rick Prelinger. The Munich Film Museum has digitized it and redefined it. Sound disturbances at the beginning of the film and image damage at the end of the film are due to water damage.
