Summer: a film by Ohemaa Dixon

The Summer Solstice is the time of year when the days are longest and the nights are shortest (in the Northern Hemisphere). It represents the first official day of summer. From this point on, the days start waning and it is important to take some time to observe the world around you: the sunlight, your friends, anything that makes you slow down and connect.

New Yorker Ohemaa Dixon took this concept of the Solstice and summer to her community. She asked people to reflect on the themes of summer and astrology and what these things mean to them. Set against home video-style moving portraits of summer in the city, this collage of perspectives and moments puts you right in heart of a New York summer.
