NYC Artist Corps: “Crossing Rivers” Film Screening

Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Included in Garden Admission

Queens Botanical Garden presents the premiere of Crossing Rivers, a short film by artist Graciela Cassel.

Three strangers and three stories converge while crossing a river in New York. All the while, memories of another river emerge as hints. A woman and two men strike up an acquaintance in a harbor. The three of them wait for a particular boat that, by crossing the river, will transport them to another scene. All three seem to be searching for someone or something. In this journey, they weave their stories with encounters and missed encounters among them. Crossing Rivers is presented with a series of other short films by Graciela Cassel.
