“Treatment Plan” (Martin Lucas, 2011, 9min)
Shot in the Verrazano Narrows over a five month period, “Treatment Plan” is a meditation on beauty and despondency. While either the image or the sound track could be imagined as documentary on its own, together they offer a meditation on the nature and potential of film storytelling.
“What the Sea Left Behind”
(Kevin T. Allen, 2010, 4min)
A journey above and below one of America’s most polluted waterways. An audio-visual portrait of the Gowanus Canal using binaural contact microphones, a homemade hydrophone, and the filmmaker’s last roll of Super-8mm Kodachrome. The film asks us to open our eyes and ears to meet a hidden world submerged within this forgotten and neglected estuary.
“English Kills Voyage”
(Laura Chipley, Nathan Kensinger, Sarah Nelson Wright, 2013, 8min)
The Newtown Creek is one of the most polluted bodies of water in the United States. “English Kills Voyage” journeys into the waters of this toxic Superfund Site, exploring the English Kills, a contaminated tributary located at the very end the canal in Bushwick, Brooklyn. This film was created by The Newtown Creek Armada, a public art project exploring the past, present and future of the creek.
