On Saturday, November 16, ATA Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA presents the second in its Psycho-Geography series, the West Coast premiere of Your Day Is My Night, with Lynne Sachs in person!!

Prodigal daughter Sachs returns with a dramatic ethnography on a little-seen subculture: older residents of “shift-bed” apartments in New York’s Chinatown, where immigrants are jammed into shared rooms, beds in use around the clock. Non-professional actors play out issues of privacy, intimacy, and ownership, as their shift-bed experience finds cinematic expression through vérité conversations, character-driven fictions, and integrated movement pieces. Collaborating with cinematographer Sean Hanley and composer Stephen Vitiello, Sachs’ mixture of reportage, play-acting, and memory opens up an Other hidden world.

Preceded by: Lynne’s collaboration with Chris Marker, Three Cheers for the Whale, plus 3 of her short NYC portraits.
