Magic Hour

If you've ever travelled to New York City and compared it to your own city when you returned home, you'll understand the concept of this short film. And if that's the case, I have no doubts that you will relate to the character of Chloë Sevigny in 'Magic Hour', because if you've ever visited New York City, you would have experienced that feeling of never wanting to leave. I certainly have.

Magic Hour

Directed by American actress and fashion designer Tara Subkoff, “Magic Hour” is a seven-minute short film about isolation versus intimacy, and revolves around a character called Grey (Chloë Sevigny) who longs for her life in New York after moving out to Los Angeles with her husband.

Her isolation is so intense that she is only able to open up to her partner when they are separated by a telephone, even if that means he has to stand outside, with just a wall separating them both.

“I wish I could walk around and see where my day takes me.”

This is the statement of the film that rings 100% true. This is basically what it was like when I was in New York last year. You don’t plan your days – at least you try not to. Just step outside and start walking. Start exploring.

My brother recently moved to New York and I will be using the excuse of visiting him and his new wife to go back to the concrete jungle in the very near future. Can’t wait!

❤❤ I Love New York. ❤❤

The film was presented by global contemporary art channel MOCAtv to celebrate the opening of the 2013 Urs Fischer exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
