Tugs (Jessica Edwards | Brooklyn, NY | 9 min.)

Official Link: http://www.tugsfilm.com

Set against the backdrop of one of the world’s busiest harbors, TUGS is an ode to the hardest working boats on the waterways and the people who pilot them. Once filled with scallywags and salty dogs, the marine towing industry in New York City has matured, but the traditions of family, community, and hard work persevere. Lyrically realized, TUGS admires the legacy and longevity of the boats and the strength of their position in the country’s history and future.
