- On March 17, 1930, a crowd assembled outside Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary in hopes of witnessing Al Capone's release from prison. Morrison and Vijay Iyer turn a single archival panning shot of that scene (originally filmed in 1930 by Jack Painter) and its accompanying audio track (recorded in 1930 by Addison Tice) into a split-screen surround sound panoramic film that continually doubles back on itself, creating a short cinematic meditation on the nature of spectacle and spectatorship.
- Title from title frames.
