LOST/NYC by Homer Liwag

Chasing light and fleeting moments while lost in New York City. Based on a quote of New York painter Georgia O’Keeffe: “One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt”. Powerful portrait of the city and it’s people in atmospheric black and white images.
by Paul Higbie and Seth Pompi

On the fringe of the New York stand-up scene, there are characters no comedian could make up. At open mikes, they do fascinating comedy which sometimes only makes sense to them. Two outsider comedians let us deep into their lives, which are even more surprising and peculiar than their acts.
RAIL FAN by James Stuart
United States | 2018 | Short Doc | 36 min 33 sec
Hidden in NYC’s subway system there is a thriving subculture, rail fans; young men from the inner city who head into the subway not to travel from A to B, but to revel in the sights and sounds of the system. See what the city’s subway obsessives find so fascinating about this sprawling, crowded and broken-down system.
