DOC SOUP JANUARY: THE WORLD BEFORE YOUR FEET

January 9, 2019

Join Calgary International Film Festival for their monthly documentary series, Doc Soup. 

Film Synopsis: There are 8,000 miles of sidewalks, paths and roads in New York City, and for the past six years Matt Green has been walking them all–every street, every block, every pedestrian overpass, park lane and hiking trail. Over time Matt has amassed an encyclopedia of surprising New York trivia and underground history, informed by his own research and conversations with the amused but supportive New Yorkers he encounters along the way. 

Executive produced by Oscar® nominee Jesse Eisenberg, THE WORLD BEFORE YOUR FEET is an authentic tribute to New York and the freedom to be found in the simple act of putting on one’s shoes and taking a walk outside.
