Really enjoy the concept of this video for Giana Caliolo aka Calicoco directed by New York-based filmmaker Kyle McCarthy. Shot in Lido Beach, “Anchor Park” follows a young reporter waiting for a story to break. As Caliolo states:
“When I was writing ‘Anchor Park,’ I was trying to confront some of my early shame, fears, and anxieties that have followed me into adulthood, some of which touch upon sexuality and gender. I had this vision of going back to the park as an adult to acknowledge some of these things. It was honestly so cathartic to play an alter-ego and face those demons head on. I love the way Kyle was able to create a narrative to tie it all together. He really did it with such eloquence and charm.”
