Streets Of Lights is a short film by Christopher Dormoy that takes us inside the buzzing Canadian metropolis of night-time Montreal.
The film uses time-lapse techniques to create a unique effect. We see thousands of cars speed down bright streets. They’re going so fast that their headlights merge into a mix of white and red light. We get to see all the different aspects of the city. From the quiet historic parts of town to the winding motorways that cascade into the city from all sides. It’s a whistle-stop tour of the whole city in just three and a half minutes.
The short film reminds us of the beauty that sprawling urban cities can have, especially at night. Montreal is probably overlooked when it comes to photographing a dense city landscape, as it’s only a short distance away from the bright lights of New York. But this film suggests that the Big Apple might have a new contender for the crown of the prettiest city in the North-East. It gives us an entirely new perspective on a stunning city.
