Phyllis Wattis Theater

Podworka observes children in Lodz, Poland, as they transform parking lots, storage units, and other abandoned urban structures into centers of play. Views of a cold and traffic-weary city are brought to life through the children's creative vitality. Described as a landscape painting in real time, No captures the routine labor of a Japanese peasant couple as they methodically bundle hay and spread it out over a field. Lockhart's camera remains still and unchanging throughout, calling into question the relationship between photography and cinema.
