CHECK OUT THE DUDE WITH THE CAT ON HIS HEAD! It’s at the start of the video.
Oh my god check out this amazing woman Yorick and I got to start freestyling on the banks of Zuccotti – and her CD is great!! Good to know OWS is still thriving – albeit on the backs of the very few. The one-of-a-kind and unprompted interactions start at 8 minutes.
What a compelling place for this scene – this deep and multifaceted meditation on death and passing. We are at one of the 9/11 Memorials here in Battery Park, just south of Wall St. We’re filming all of Richard III at sites in the Wall St area – Financial District more broadly.
