Originally produced by Michael Blackwood Productions in 1959.
What's it about? Shot in 1959, Michael Blackwoods first film, Broadway Express, is a portrait of the people of New York City, as experienced in the citys lively subways. Blackwoods camera captures the beautiful and chaotic choreography of the commuters. Accompanied by a sparse musical score driven by punchy snare drums and rumbling piano notes that emulate the rhythmic, pacing pounding of the subway cars, this short film pulses with a frenetic energy that builds to a crescendo before collapsing into the collective weariness of New York City at days end. The subways cars and platforms empty out in preparation for another day, when the dance will happen all over again.
