FILM | "New York Portrait I, II, III" 

Not every story is told by spinning a linear yarn or by zeroing in on specific characters. On Wednesday, October 28, the Dryden Theatre (Eastman Museum, 900 East Avenue) will screen Peter Hutton's "New York Portrait I, II, III" in 16mm. The three-part work is non-narrative, but rather a collection of impressions of place. Edited in three parts over 12 years, Hutton creates a poetic, textural sketch of New York City's rhythms, architecture, and inhabitants.

"New York Portrait I, II, III" is part of the "Five Faces of New York in the 1970's" series showing at Dryden, which kicked off with Woody Allen's "Manhattan." The 47-minute screening begins at 8 p.m. with a special introduction to be given by Douglas Crimp, professor of art history at the University of Rochester. Tickets are $8 for general admission, $6 for members, and $4 for students with ID. For more information, call 271-3361, or visit
