The Film

A solo dancer explores and inhabits this odd, empty beach, the ruin of a 20th-century concrete factory, which extends into the East River at Stuyvesant Cove Park (East 20th Street). The footage, shot during a spectacular dawn on the last day of summer, creates a narrative of one character’s intimate journey in an eclectic natural/industrial ecosystem amid the vastness of New York City. This is a love song to one moment in the city’s ever-changing landscape and personality – a moment of freedom, beauty, and joy in movement – soon to be washed away by the tide.
