“Archipelago New York” is a three-part documentary series about a modern-day expedition by sailboat into the natural habitat of the world’s most famous city.
The series aired on the European tv network ARTE in 2021. It was shown on numerous festivals in the US and abroad, amongst them the International Ocean Film Festival 2022, San Francisco and the Blue Water film Festival in San Diego. It won an excellent award at the International Nature without Border Film Festival 2022, and was awarded the Best Science Film at the Blue Water Film Festival.
Before New York was New York the indigenous Lenape called the island Mannahatta, the land of the many hills, an estuary where salt- and fresh water create a unique habitat. Ever since the arrival of the European colonialists the nature here has been exploited, polluted and destroyed. This is about to change. More and more people wake up to the call of nature, and nature takes back the city. Meanwhile, climate crisis and rising sea level pose an existential threat to the island world.
The population and its density in metropolises like New York are increasing. The key question is how the devastating consequences of overpopulation can be set off. Is relying on technical solutions really the only option or isn’t it more necessary than ever that people change their behavior?
