City in Shadows: The love letter to Missoula



Behold! Artist Andy Smetanka has made his short film City in Shadows available in its entirety.


The silhouette animation shows Missoula landmarks in dusky yet colorful imagery—a style that Smetanka has become known for. The soundtrack was recorded at MAM by musician Shane Hickey. It features a who's who of local musicians: Lisena Brown on piano, Hermina Harold on guitar, June West on banjo, Gibson Hartwell on pedal steel, plus Smetanka, who adds to the otherworldly ambience with wine glasses, singing saw and birdcalls.

Seen all across Facebook ever since this video went up: posts from former Missoulians really missing Missoula.
