COASTAL KNOWLEDGE

Rarely is New York City considered a seatown, though it is surrounded by over 500 miles of shoreline. This collection of short experimental documentaries takes us from the sticky waters of the Gowanus Canal to the moonlit urban beaches of Jamaica Bay, with apocalyptic train stops in the overgrown Brooklyn Navy Yard and a peninsula off the Bronx River. As the city prepares for its next era battling climate change and sea level rise, consider the creatures and people who live and rely on this tenuous stretch of land.
