In NYC, you’re always on the edge of adventure. Rooftop heads to the wilds of Industry City (just two subway stops from Manhattan) for local filmmakers’ danger and chaos, dark humor and gritty beauty.
New Yorkers take trouble in stride, dodging it when they need to, running with it when they want. As Rooftop moves into a impressive new venue -- multiple roofs in an industrial badlands (with spectacular views of Manhattan) -- we know our audience will thrill to this show, as New York filmmakers channel the city’s hectic energy, creating worlds of chaos, some real, others imagined or untrue.

"Maundrie Fox‘s self-titled, electronic release is glitch in its most civilized form. The American expat crafts, expertly, wandering beats with such a deep pocket that the potential to ignore the rest exists. In brief moments, the thumping subsides, letting you wipe the sweat from your brow, and in those moments, melodic clarity proves that it’s all there. Similarly, the supporting pad sounds truly feel designed rather than used, setting a living background for the lead samples to inhabit. In entirety, Maundrie Fox has delivered pure gold, a standard for DIY music." - Dingus
