A short musical film which threads through five minutes of an extraordinary mix of fluid rhythms and funky echoes. The music is modeled after the sounds of New York, in its infinite contradictions and beauty, with its magical atmosphere, engaging and evocative. This approach to storytelling weaves a passionate emotional tale about the Big Apple’s multiplicity of souls and multi-ethnic flavor.The short film is a meaningful melting-pot of powerful images, words and music which captures the blazing heat of life in this city that is like no other on earth. The film begins with Spike Lee reciting the sonnet “The New Colossus” by the American poet Emma Lazarus, inscribed on a bronze plaque on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, the renowned symbol of peace and of the strength and willingness to welcome, to amalgamate, to thrive, to reinvent itself as a true community of the future.
