City Slivers (1976) by Gordon Matta-Clarck is an experimental film created by attaching black strips to the camera lens in order to cut and maniplulate de visible space of Manhattan's urban landscape. This essay discusses the traits of continuity that link the film to Matta-Clarck's previous actions of dissecting architecture (building cuts). In addiction it argues how the use the film medium renders City Slivers an action that both destabilizes and formalizes, providing extraordinary potential for the disclosure and transformation of urban space.
