COLD HUDSON is a 7 hour slow film premiering at 12pm on WLIW21 on November 23, 2017, Thanksgiving day. COLD HUDSON follows the US Coast Guard Cutter Sturgeon Bay on a 7 hour journey up the Hudson River, starting at West Point, travelling north on the river to Catskill, then back south to Rhinecliff, NY. The film is shot from the perspective of the captain and crew on the bow, and one static shot shows the real time progression of the ship as it cuts through cold waters. The USCGC Sturgeon Bay, a 140-foot Bay Class Cutter stationed at Governors Island, is used for breaking ice and rescuing ships caught in the frozen landscape that forms on the river each winter.
