Doc Fortnight, MoMA’s annual international festival of nonfiction film, returns with 10 days of important new discoveries in documentary cinema. Featuring recent films by emerging and established artists—many of whom will introduce their work in person—the festival offers fresh ways of considering the world around us in a time of increasing political uncertainty.
An experimental documentary on the New York City subway by Edin Velez © 2017 All rights reserved
State of Rest and Motion is a tour de force, a poetic homage to the subway as the rare place where people have time to themselves even as they share their space with thousands of others. Velez’s main intention is to produce a series of portraits of humans in their daily habitat. The faces are so honest and open, oblivious to fact that they are being recorded, yet there they are, close-up in stunning detail.
