POV

City of Cranes

Video duration: 13:55Expires: 11/10/12

Cranes dominate our skylines, yet few people ever notice them. Spending most of their time alone up in the crane, crane operators seem to merge with their machines, becoming invisible to passers-by. City of Cranes takes the viewer hundreds of feet above the ground to hear the insights of crane operators, and see a glimpse of the poetic, mesmerizing world of cranes.
