Karen Loew’s short dance film, No Man’s Land is a moving tribute to the strange majesty of Stuyvesant Cove Park. It focuses on a single dancer, following her movements as she spins and floats around the beach while the sun sets. Its atmospheric, dreamlike aesthetic is reflected by the changing colors in the sky, which cast the city in various shades before turning everything dark blue.

The film commemorates the park as it is, a secret and unassuming hideaway by the water with so much to offer for those willing to find it.
