City #25, New York. Glen Hansard's Oscar Winning film, Once, is a semi-autobiographical look at his life growing up as a street performer in Dublin. We got the chance to film him on one of the coldest days in Central Park, where he showed us just how down to earth he still is. Cameos from a hawk and a squirrel.

ABOUT THIS VIDEO SERIES:
The Busking Project (busk.co) went on a journey to film the world's most talented street performers. It was an epic trip, starting in Europe and taking us through Asia, Africa and the Americas. Buskers are a group of people who are universally misunderstood, under appreciated and often criminalised. Our videos show them in a way like you've never seen or heard them before.
