A short film by Carmen Vidal set in New York - winner of the Student Academy Award in 2006. It's a documentary in the "urban symphony" style, and depicts New York city in the moments before dawn.
There's something about cities waking up. When I think about mornings in the city I always think about Paris, when they clean the streets by running water through them, the sounds of a city which you hear all day, but more focused on.
Arnhem wakes up like that as well, cleaning, preparing the city for a new day, the guy across the street preparing the terrace, hours before the first visitors will arrive. He always ends his ritual by having a cappuchino on his favourite spot on that terrace. Great to watch when you know he has no clue that you watch him every morning.
