of New York City shot over 15 years [1959-74] during which time Mr.
Harris pioneered and contemporized time-lapse film making techniques
to achieve this unique experiential view of the world we inhabit.

for understanding of the complex world about … rare combination
of qualities … necessary to making great films”
