The 4th of July

Documentary images of the celebration of Independence Day (4 July) in New York. On the soundtrack, a woman (the voice of Cynthia Beatt) talks about the end of a relationship. Faroqhi's inventive and meticulously pictures of New York (taken before the attack on the Twin Towers) have lost their innocence since 11 September 2001. The police roadblocks and fire brigade in the background of the famous skyline have now definitively acquired a different meaning.
