Blurring the filmmaker’s personal childhood experiences with mythic representations set around Seattle, City By the Sound explores the boundaries that make up documentary, fiction, and video essays, as seen through the sights of a hiker who can see through time and space. What unfolds is a non-linear series of vignettes ranging in complexity and duration, from a Sasquatch sighting and a ghost story, to an old woman telling a story about a tree; all are woven together to create a strange tapestry of personal and collective memories.
