mankind is no island

TypeErin HansonComment

Jason van Genderen, winner of the 2008 of Tropfest New York for his video Mankind is No Island, uses a mixture of found type and street photography to create a stirring and emotional portrayal of the homeless in New York and Sydney. In his examination the question is asked, when we say "I ♥ New York" or proclaim it on a 1,000 different souvenirs, do we love the city or do we love the people, and does that include ALL people. The video speaks better than I do. One extraordinary bonus, the film was shot exclusively with cell phones.

Thanks for sending me this clip Mom!
