Atlantic City is a resort town two hours from New York City that has experienced a dramatic decline over the past 30 years. Once the most popular family vacation destination in the United States, the city has slid into a dystopian version of its former self with beachfront property plummeting amidst vacant lots and deserted high rise hotels garishly positioned against the coastal backdrop. As the city tries in vain to regain its footing, residents are left living in the broken shell of a city. This film is an attempt to provide a realistic portrayal of what it feels like to walk the streets of the Atlantic City.
Billy Linker and Ben Carey are New York based filmmakers. Billy runs the production company Brickhouse Projects and Ben is a commercial cinematographer.
