Tall Buildings

The brutal memories of childhood are combined with glimpses of the emotional landscape of Manhattan's skyscrapers in this shortest of films.

"While editing OUT WEST the words for TALL BUILDINGS came. That summer we had filmed the skyscrapers of New York. When filming the resonances of a family tragedy that had happened before I was born resurfaced so that the buildings began to represent a kind of emotional architecture."- C.S.

Narration Suzanne Parke
