Short Film Of The Day: Undercity

Why Watch? A great story is being told all the time, right under your feet. And because you’ve always wanted to go where you were told not to.

With this doc, director Andrew Wonder lives up to his name. He joined forces with urban explorer Steve Duncan to dig around the New York subway system where mere mortals aren’t meant to go. “The following was filmed without consent or permits from the New York City Transit Authority,” pretty well sums up the attitude, and there’s certainly a rush of the illegal right at the beginning, but the overall feel is one of grungy beauty that’s there if we dare to view it. Absolutely phenomenal work here.

What does it cost? Just 27 minutes of your time.

Trust us. You have time for more short films.
