Clear Ice Fern
12 minutes – (art/experimental)
Director Mark Street – United States

Images shot through architectural glass on Super 8 film in the dead of night in New York.

His work has moved from tactile, abstract explorations of 16mm film to essays on urban experience to improvised feature-length narratives.
