The Artifact Artist
Russ Kendall, 2017, USA, 26 minutes
World Premiere

Uprooted from the forests of Connecticut to move to New York City, 9 year old Scott Jordan declared, ‘I won’t be a city kid!’ 45 years later, Scott is an urban archeologist, an Indiana Jones in Gotham, if you will. By hand digging out old privies, cisterns and landfills across the five boroughs, Scott preserves New York City history by creating artifact art with the treasures he finds.
