This film captures the core of New York City on a human scale, focusing on the work of eight widely varied performing artists:
A dancer, a concert pianist, an actress, a Noh performer, a multi-instrumentalist, a tabla virtuoso, an organist and a singing poet.
Manhattan: The provocative, dense and iconic home to 8 million human stories, ever changing and often over-whelming to countless masses of visitors.
Often-unseen and surprising images of the cityâ€™s unique atmosphere lend an evocative dimension to the very personal glimpses into the lives woven throughout the film.
This rare view of Manhattanâ€™s creative heart powerfully conveys the intensity and scope of the city that is both humanistic and insightful.
