Ernie Gehr screens his 1991 film Side/Walk/Shuttle showing views of San Francisco as seen from a glass elevator. The film begins with a black screen and the clatter of unintelligible conversations. An upside-down view of the city appears as the sound cuts out, and the camera beings moves. Buildings appear to grow and slowly float past each other. Sound resumes as the camera turns its focus toward the street and its cars.
