Cannonball Section, The


Rental Format(s): 16mm film, 18 fps

A rendition of a childhood pastime. This rhythmic balancing game is played on a set of cannonballs embedded in the ground at 89th Street and Riverside Drive, New York City, in front of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument. The cannonballs relate to cannons mounted nearby, which face across the Hudson River towards the rest of the United States.

Note: this film is presented deliberately without on-screen titles, and is meant to be a complete bright object in the dark. - A.H.
