Jim Jennings's silent cinematic poem reflects a kind of \"mirrored life\": filming in New York's Garment District, a centre for fashion design, he focused on reflecting surfaces - display cases, windows - and captured richly nuanced black and white shadow plays and distorted images reminiscent of those found in a hall of mirrors. Some fantastic figures emerge in the reflection of cut glass, while people passing by and objects drifting in the wind act as shadowy figures from a foreign land beyond glamour.
If I didn't live in New York, I wouldn't have made as many films and photographs using New York as subject matter. At the same time, I definitely would have managed to visit the city in order to do so. (Jim Jennings)
