Overview

For more than six years, Matt Green, 37, has been on a deeply personal mission. He’s walking every block of every street in New York City—a journey of more than 8,000 miles.

In order to fulfill his quest, Matt quit his job as an engineer, gave up his apartment, and discarded most of his possessions. He now couch-surfs through apartments across the boroughs, living on about $15 per day. When he’s not out walking, he spends his time researching the myriad curiosities that catch his eye along the way, from national landmarks to humble manhole covers. Why undertake this journey? Perhaps the more salient question is, why not?

Culling his documentary from more than 500 hours of footage, director Jeremy Workman offers an enchanting, inspiring, up-close look at a man who isn’t himself seeking anything in particular beyond an unmediated experience of daily life, in all its overlooked wonders.

Subject Matt Green will be in attendance for all screenings and Director Jeremy Workman will be in attendance for the Sun. Nov. 4th and Mon. Nov. 5th screenings.

The Last Race

As much a poignant ode to community as it is a thrill ride, this documentary portrait of a small-town stock-car racetrack—and the blue-collar drivers who’ve formed a family there—also examines the impact of real-estate development on the lives we struggle to build beyond its reach.
