Other Cinema

“Prodigal daughter Sachs returns with a dramatic ethnography on a little-seen subculture: older residents of “shift-bed” apartments in New York’s Chinatown, where immigrants are jammed into shared rooms, beds in use around the clock. Non-professional actors play out issues of privacy, intimacy, and ownership, as their shift-bed experience finds cinematic expression through vérité conversations, character driven fictions, and integrated movement pieces. Collaborating with cinematographer Sean Hanley and composerStephen VitielloSachs’ mixture of reportage, play-acting, and memory opens up an Other hidden world. Preceded by:  Three Cheers for the Whale by Chris Marker and Mario Ruspoli, which Lynne helped Marker to translate to English in 2007.
