World Trade Centre, New York City.
After Eden  (2000)

Part diary film... part urban ethnography... part excavation in search of faith amidst landscapes of concrete, After Eden is a journey through a wasteland of lost souls... the dark observations of a traveller whose home has been destroyed. Assembled over a ten year period, the images were shot on outdated black and white stock, developed by hand and then optically printed to render this diary from an eerie world somewhere between heaven and hell.
