Hell Gate, 2003Color film10 minutes

Part document and poem, Hell Gate is a filmic exploration of the Hell Gate channel, originally shot with the idea of three Super-8 rolls as a triptych: the water swirls; the garbage; and the major flows of water north to the Long Island Sound and south to the East River. Lorenz’s film shows the Hell Gate as a place of reflection amidst the busy thoroughfare of boat traffic and recreation.
