The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City

An experimental documentary film
Directed by Nathan Kensinger
Color, 10 min, 2011

The Forgotten City is a portrait of the Greenpoint Terminal Market warehouses, which date back to 1890. The film, created from a series of photographs taken by Nathan Kensinger between 2007 and 2011, travels through the hidden rooms and passages of the Greenpoint Terminal Market, exploring its dark history of riots, explosions, fires, and squatters.

The film was created as part of a site specific video installation for the 2011 Bring To Light festival.
