I recently got the chance to go to New York for a very brief weekend trip. As a result the majority of the footage in this film was shot over the course of a single day in Manhattan.
It's not often that you get to travel such a distance to such an important place, only then to spend so little time experiencing it. So, through this film, I have tried to document the abstract and dreamlike nature of a whirlwind trip to an iconic city, as well as the nostalgia and the emblazoned imagery that's left behind on the return journey.
