Big cities all seem the same to me – huge buildings, noisy cars and curious pidgins reign supreme and the concrete jungle seems to expand for ever. When I visit a city and look out at the urban landscape, I can’t help but think how much happier I’d be if I was hiking in the mountains. Filmmaker Rick Smith doesn’t see it that way. When he hit the streets of the Bay Area he saw amazing architecture, a maze of moving objects and an endless opportunity to capture it all on film. This is not the guidebook tour of San Francisco – this is something entirely different! Accompanied by the ad-libbed guitar of Montana musician Leif Routman, join Rick as he opens our eyes to “The Urban Aesthetic”.
