Now it's being re-released on the big screen, with a showing Friday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It will hit screens around the country this fall.<p><em>Stations of the Elevated</em> is not a documentary in the usual sense. It's only 45 minutes long; there's no narrative and hardly any dialogue.
