Summary: The announcement that Astroland was about to close, along with the hard rain brought when Hurricane Hanna made landfall, sparked an idea to use these circumstances as a backdrop for a narrative.

A woman goes to Coney Island to grieve the end of a love affair. She’s gone there to reflect on and experience her feelings of loss. The almost deserted landscape amplifies her emotions and gives her the space to get in touch with them.

Working with the model, Laura Minchella, we fashioned a fictional character that resonated with her personal history, thus allowing her to bring intimacy and depth to her performance.

Coney Island, in a period of transition, seemed an appropriate place to tell the story of a woman letting go of the past and perhaps glimpsing the start
of something new.
