Counting
Zabaltegi

Fifteen distinct but interconnected chapters, shot in locations from Russia to New York City to Istanbul. Together, these build to a reckoning at the intersection of city symphony, diary, and essay film. Perhaps the most personal of Cohen's documentary works, it measures street life, light, and time, noting not only surveillance and over-development but resistance and its phantoms as manifested in music, animals and everyday magic.

BIOGRAPHY

Jem Cohen (Kabul, 1962) has been experimenting with images for thirty years by means of music videos, short films, documentaries and other formats where music and urban landscapes take on enormous importance. Throughout his career he has collaborated with groups including R.E.M., Godspeed You Black Emperor and Smoke, dedicating his film Benjamin Smoke (2000) to its leader. He also directed the feature films Chain (2004) and Museum Hours (2012).
