WATCH: Hurricane Sandy video footage from Williamsburg (‘From Across The East River’)


Filmmaker John Mattiuzzi writes:

When I set out to film my neighborhood in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the night of the hurricane, I did not anticipate the footage I was about to film. My main goal was to make a short film of whatever I captured that night. A small art film was the idea. But after the explosion, things quickly changed for me. Two weeks later, I finally had time to edit this film together, and show a small perspective of the storm: “A One Block’s Story.”
This film is an emotional response of what it actually felt like to be out in hurricane Sandy, amidst all the immense energy, that eventually consumed parts of ours.
