City out of Time

Canada, 1959 (MIFF 1960, Programme 9 )

Director: Colin Low

A portrait of Venice as Canaletto, Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto must have seen it. City Out of Time is a discovery of the city, which, like the arts the city fostered and still cherishes, has transcended time inspiring generations to pause and reflect on the meaning of life and art.
