Standing Water is a poetic video documentary that focuses on two Staten Island residents who were deeply affected by Hurricane Sandy. These two subjects demonstrate tenacity, courage and a willingness to give back to their communities that are still in the process of recovery, seventeen months after the storm. The film focuses on a man sacrificing the opportunity to rebuild his home so he can continue to operate a relief center and a women reconciling her loss through her artistic practice. Through metaphors and examples of altruism, service and creativity, Standing Water portrays people working within their environments to further the process of healing.
