Synopsis

Scenes from the City is a celebration of the rise of New York-shot films, particularly after the MOFTB was formed in 1966 making the city a much more welcoming film location. New York could, once again, lure talent such as Woody Allen and Martin Scorcese, to its streets - streets that could provide both a desolate urban prairie for Midnight Cowboy or a delightful 5th Avenue shopping romp for a Mrs. Golightly. New York's cityscape has enriched the movies it's been a part of with its diverse and entrancing visage, not unlike the faces of the industry's most beautiful and talented actors and actresses. Scenes from the City is an affectionate ovation for this 'character' that rarely receives billing, but always steals the show.
