A camera roll city cine-poem, filmed in Brooklyn in the vicinity of the Gowanus Canal. Shot on a single roll of 16mm film and made as a filmic postcard for a distant friend, Camera Roll captures a Brooklyn neighborhood's beauty and dereliction, industry and atmosphere, and the sounds of the elevated train rumbling in the distance.
