If you think Chris Marker's LA JETEE is the only good film made from still photos, here's one you must see. I think it's even better; certainly it's clearer in its meaning. Herschel Bernardi does the voice of a retired Jewish tailor in NYC in the 1940s who remembers his turn-of-the-20th-century immigrant youth on the Lower East Side while looking at the "strangers," Puerto Ricans and blacks, now living in his neighborhood. With photos by Lewis Hine, Helen Levitt, Jacob Riis, Percy Byron, and others, and an unforgettably beautiful musical score.
