Rudy Burckhardt & Edwin Denby, The Climate of New York, 1980 (excerpt)

1980, 8 min

In 1935, Rudy Burckhardt moved to New York from Basel, Switzerland, with Edwin Denby, who went on to become one of the foremost American dance critics.

This film is a collaboration between these two artists: Burckhardt's photos are displayed onscreen as Denby reads his sonnets.
