It’s difficult to disregard Audrey Hepburn, still more when she is sharing a cab with George Peppard, but Lewis Klahr wanted our eyes on the rear projection. Look, he said: cars were beautiful once; this is how New York was. Strange and wonderful that the documentary gift should come wrapped as a fake. It is a long scene, as long as a daydream. Klahr then showed his Green ’62, a portrait of street traffic in curved glass that proved once and for all that even the simplest actualité is not immune to memory.
