    yeah the text was sort of visually distracting, with that said I imagine it was very cool for the participants to have their names in the video, I’ve always thought of Brownsville as a horrible neighborhood in Brooklyn but this brigthens my outlook on the place some

    love the song. love that they profiled nyc youth and their families, but i can’t help feeling a little uncomfortable about the lack of integration. there’s some, but not enough. but the again, forced integration isn’t genuine. i live/work in brooklyn, so i understand demographics, but i think this video brings to light that nyc is more of a mixing then melting pot. i hope in the future this continues to change. on a more positive note, this could be seen as a project heralding in a new era that will continue to bring more people together through art.

The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
