Riding in an SUV and armed with a high-speed camera, British-born artist James Nares drove all over Manhattan, from Harlem to Chinatown, to observe and film the world’s fastest-moving species of human, the New Yorker. After recording 16 hours of footage, he cut it to one hour and slowed the action way, way down 
so that the slightest gesture, as our own Christian Viveros-Fauné wrote in his 
review, becomes “breathtakingly theatrical.” Thurston Moore composed and performed the music for Street and, the only way a screening could be any more mesmerizing is by seeing Moore accompany the film live on his 12-string guitar, which is what he’ll do tonight.
