When it gets scorching, dripping and sweaty hot in New York, it’s easy to start day dreaming about opening every fire hydrant on the street or building a raft and spending the rest of the summer floating down the Hudson. Then you think about how much you’d sweat while constructing even the tiniest water vessel, and back to laying on your cement floor in front of a fan. But tonight, your seafaring dreams can vicariously come true if you go see Flood Tide:Remixed.
Flood TIde is a film about a group of people who built art rafts in 2008 and actually traveled down the Hudson. Tonight, Rooftop Films is presenting a FREE screening of the shortened version of the film, featuring a live musical score by Dark Dark Dark. And it’s at Socrates Sculpture Park, which is about a mile from where the homemade fleet took off.
