Under The Brooklyn Bridge
1953, black and white, 15 min.
“…one cannot deny its documentary value or Burckhardt’s eye for detail, his unpretentiousness. There are sequences—the children swimming under the Brooklyn Bridge is one—which belong with the best footage on New York by anybody.” —Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice. Music by Claude Debussy and Francis Poulenc played on two pianos by Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale.
