Prompt: This project asks to create a non-linear mash-up of Manhattan, using archival resources, archival sound, and experimental cutting and montage, imagining a future Manhattan and a future for the chosen subject.

In attempt to show elastic time, I chose to portray transportation from the past, present, and the possible future. The models of cars and the way we as a society travel has drastically evolved over the years in Mannahatta/ Manhattan. Through days of research of both my topic and footage, I began my film with quick cuts to blur timelines.
