The camera captures the everydayness of labor while observing workers at the Hudson Yards development, the largest construction site currently in the United States. From the subway to the construction site to the space in between, the film offers a gaze into construction in New York City, one we do not often see.
Born to an Armenian Lebanese family, Gamar Markarian is a designer and urbanist, interested in media and communication. She received her MS in Design and Urban Ecologies from Parsons The New School in 2016. With a passion for observational documentaries, Gamar believes film can contribute to existing conversations around personal experience, politics and public life.
