Andrew Clancy's A Year in New York

I really love how Andrew Clancy's brief film, A Year in New York, pushes me to see. The juxtaposition of the familiar images of New York City with James Vincent McMorrow's We Don't Eat recasts the film as dialogue with my deceased Irish parents.  In the house I grew up in, we didn't eat until my own Da was at the table.

So do traditions shape our memory and in turn shape how we come to know and unknow as adults?  What traditions frame and unframe the learning you privilege in your life? 

Your art?

Your classroom?
