For over 100 years, an astonishing array of 20th century musicians, actors, playwrights, dancers, photographers, writers, and painters – including Isadora Duncan, George Balanchine, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, and Norman Mailer – lived and worked in the studios located atop Carnegie Hall. When, in 2001, the Carnegie Hall Corporation began to systematically evict the artists, some of whom had been in residence for four decades, photographer Josef Astor began filming the remaining artist-tenants as they fought to preserve the studios for future generations. Astor’s cinematic debut, heralded as a portrait of working artists in New York City, is culled from several hundred hours of footage of his documentation of the end of Carnegie Studios, paired with vintage film and television snippets and materials from private collections.
