ABOUT THE FILM
An homage to New York’s creative culture that’s being pushed aside as luxury condos rise high into the sky. The short film presents an impressionistic story of four subway dancers who must adapt their art form as the urban environment shifts around them. As New York embraces wealth, luxury, and sterility, will the artistic expression that gives the city its identity be lost in the process?
The concept for the film evolved during soul-searching conversations among the filmmakers who wondered if the artistic, experimental NY they had been attracted to was progressively disappearing. This was a personal project and a labor of love for collaborators Brandon Bloch, Tim Sessler, and Brandon Bray. Shot on free weekends and weekdays over the course of five months. With no budget – but a generous donation of time and equipment – our small two-man crew begged, borrowed, and stole every shot to create the resulting visual poem.
