This powerful short work documents a religious ceremony of the Celestial Church of Christ on Rockaway Beach; a hipster drum performance by the all-girl drum corps Chica Vas in Manhattan; and a Haitian vodou ritual honoring the Ghede family of spirits in Brooklyn. Wyatt’s fluid, mobile camerawork and dexterous editing offers an insider’s view of three New York City communities pulsing with life and conviction.
