LICK YOUR WOUNDS or HOW I LEARNED TO BE SENSITIVE IN THE CITY
Despite the setbacks of an oppressive metropolis, this filmmaker is encouraging artistry within the city he loves.
Growing up at a time when New York City was considered ‘dead’ post 9/11, filmmaker Andrew Kass was sensitive to its changing landscape, particularly when it came to adventure and art. “I refuse to be someone who is broken by these aspects,” explains Kass. “This film is a hint that you don’t have to accept the disabling ideas of nostalgia and it’s limitations. No matter how dead you think the city may be, there will always be individuals evolving with it or at least responding to it.”
