Cohen (Museum Hours) evokes the fabric of urban life with this richly textured combination of sound and image. A essayistic documentary in 15 chapters, Counting  weaves 15 “snapshots” of New York, Moscow, Istanbul, and more into a tapestry that captures a range of ephemeral moments with an elegiac tenderness—from street protests to flickering lights and the movement of clouds across the sky. Cohen, who has noted that the film initially began in response to the death of cine-essay pioneer Chris Marker, emerges as both rigorous documentarian and consummate flaneur. “Counting is like taking a Sunday walk through spatial and temporal interstices, as touching as it is magical.”—Berlin Film Festival. (111 mins.)

Filmography: Museum Hours (2012), Instrument (2003), Benjamin Smoke (2000)
