This is a teaser for Division Avenue, a short documentary film about one of the most prominent yet often ignored landmarks of New York, the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The film examines the architecture and fabric of the BQE through poetic imagery and experimental ambient sound recordings, inviting the audience to encounter urban landscape in a unique and curious way.
Division Avenue was made during my residency at UnionDocs Center for Documentary Art in Brooklyn, NY as part of their CoLab - a collaborative of 12 artists from various backgrounds working with documentary. The film is co-directed with Janna Kyllästinen.
