East Side Summer

Directed by Rudy Burckhardt
United States, 1959
Short, Documentary

Synopsis

Rudy Burckhardt’s color portrait of Manhattan’s East Side strolls along at an easy pace befitting blue skies and Thelonious Monk’s piano score. Where most city symphonies prize grandiose views of the urban organism, Burckhardt sticks to the walker’s view.
