Rooftop Films, Green-Wood Cemetery, The Moth, Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Morbid Anatomy and Unison Media team up to create one of the most mysterious evenings in Rooftop or Green-Wood's history. Guided by the thousands of flickering candles, you’ll wander along the Cemetery’s winding paths and have chance encounters with musicians, moving images, performance artists, and storytellers. It all takes place against the stunning backdrop of one New York City’s most historic and storied landscapes, lit by the light of the silvery moon.
