i, A stranger: A New York City Film Identifying the World


Most of us have seen the current face of the world. We could see the bad aspects of it, may be we could identify how it affects us. Though there is a distinct difference between ‘see’ and ‘observe closely and act’. C49 Productions did the above by creating this reflecting short New York City film. It was filmed in New York City and the movie identifies how the world has been evolved to. Moreover, describes how humanity can change it to be a better world.

In recent years this feeling of separation, of “otherness”, has become increasingly dangerous. Hatred and fear have claimed ownership over it. Terrorism sits heavy on the minds of every citizen in our world. Racism plagues the streets and systems we once relied on. We have lost sight of the one thing that we all have in common: we’re all human.” Douglas Emerson, the director of the movie explains. “No matter what happens, at the end of the day we are all brothers and sisters. We are created from the same materials and inhabit the same planet. We can no longer let fear control our identities.“. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
