Coney Island Mermaid

1990, 10 mins.

Slices of life in New York City. A short film.

Coney Island Mermaid

A sea ritual. Every year in Brooklyn’s famed Coney Island, hundreds of women and men dress as mermaids and sea creatures gather on the summer solstice to “inaugurate” the start of summer so that mortals may use the ocean to swim in.

Celebration!
