Fort Greene Park

by Syd Briscoe

Battles: “Fort Greene Park” - 6 mins 11s

There's a relentless sense of flow to this piece for Battles' 'Fort Greene Park'. The film has a hypnotic quality as it showcases unusual methods of transport: unicycles, scooters, and infinite skateboards are all present and accounted for.

The track's electronic pulse gives the visuals a sci-fi vibe, making the whole affair feel like excerpts from a futuristic movie in which walking has become obsolete. The diverse cast only adds to this, as they pull the band behind them on harnesses like the musical royalty of tomorrow.

With a clean colour palette and crisp shot selection, director Colin Read and DP Andrew Maso elevate mundane locations and miles of asphalt into something visually arresting - making this well worth a second watch to take it all in.
