Jennifer West will screen her new feature-length film, One Mile Film, on the High Line under the Standard Hotel on Oct. 17. Ms. West ran a 35-mm celluloid film strip down the length of the High Line for one day–Sept. 13–while the public stepped on it, drew on it, or did whatever they pleased. She then spliced the film together and transferred it to high-definition video. There is roughly an hour of footage, which will play between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.
