An experimental short film that journeys through hidden histories in underwater NYC, beginning with the prohibition of pinball machines and their demise in the East River in 1942. The film combines multiple techniques in animation: blending stop motion, 2D, and 3D with archival footage and a fabricated miniature underwater world.

Animated and Directed by Caroline Voagen Nelson
