Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
In this “lyrical documentary about the intersection of location and imagination” (The New York Times), filmmaker Chiara Clemente shines a light on five women artists whose inspiration is fueled by living in the “cauldron of creativity” – New York City. The artists – Nancy Spero, Marina Abramovic, Kiki Smith, Ghada Amer and Swoon – are at different stages of life and have widely varying cultural backgrounds; each has a distinctive passion, character, motivation and artistic style. But they all have one thing in common: the city to which they have journeyed and now call home.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Our City Dreams is a lyrical documentary about the intersection of location and imagination.
Fresh: Their art, like the film itself, is powerful, daring and makes you think.
Rotten: Like rushed gallery-hopping, Chiara Clemente's doc on five multigenerational, multinational women artists, all living in New York, provides only a cursory view of what's on display.
Fresh: Clemente shows she knows a thing or two about filmmaking. As somebody once said: like father, like daughter.
