Recommendation: Short film about creativity in NYC

Here’s something you don’t see every day — a tree in Manhattan wearing a colorful custom-knitted sweater!  True story: 3 women who run a gift store called Domus in Hell’s Kitchen decide to brighten up the neighborhood.  They knit a giant custom-made sweater for a tree in front of their store, and this 4-minute film captures the magic.

The film includes interviews with Nicki and Luisa from Domus and a lot of shots of the tree with passers-by stopping and reacting to it, making you feel like you’re there on the NYC sidewalks.  Very moving portrait of an only-in-New York-story.

— Has already had a review in Grist.com,

— Has been selected for a local arts festival: Hell’s Kitchen Arts Fest
