No York City, Rick Liss, 1980s NYC, stop motion film

Feeling nostalgic for 1980s New York? Artist Rick Liss‘ short film “N.Y.C. (No York City)” transports you back to the city’s grittier days. He uses stop motion to move you through the city “at the speed of blood,” a pace that doesn’t seem too different from the city’s normal flow. But don’t expect the typical tourist attractions on this journey. “No York City” features graffiti, street fights, and lots of crowds, all set to Laurie Anderson’s “For Electronic Dogs.”
