Slowing down is often overlooked as New Yorkers sprint to their next stop, office, coffee shop. Through vignettes of performance set within the busy city landscape of Lower Manhattan, "Slow Down: River to River" asks the viewer to take a moment, reflect and immerse themselves in the imagery created by the artists, dancers and people of New York.
Slow Down: River to River is an experimental documentary about the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's 17th Annual River to River Festival. It features the work of Yoko Ono and Pam Tanowitz in addition to performances restaged for camera.
