Observations (film)

Urban life can pass by quicker than time itself. If we are not intentional about slowing down our pace, to give attention to the spaces we interact with, we run the risk of disassociating with the very places that contribute to shaping our identity.

Simply observing the world around us, making note of the ways which people interact with each other and their environments, is one way to better understand and remain connected to the locales where we choose to live. Often, in giving attention to the locations we find ourselves within at any given moment and the places we most frequent, we can learn more about ourselves as individuals and as members of the larger collectives we belong to.
