Counting

  • Les Blank Lecture

In Counting, Jem Cohen (Museum Hours) brings his discerning camera eye to a series of international locales where his idiosyncratic vision coaxes meaning from the most ordinary details. From winter snows in Coney Island to a South Asian enclave in the Emirati state of Sharjah, the itinerant filmmaker and cinematic flâneur pays homage to his artistic forebears, in particular Chris Marker, while composing an intimate yet expansive film essay on modern urban life.
