:Bethlehem Steel

USA, 2016, 12 min

Bethlehem Steel was once a major force and symbol of American Industrial progress. Workers at “The Steel” forged the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings, the Golden Gate Bridge, and armaments for WWII. The plant was recently demolished to make way for the Sands Casino (owned by Sheldon Adelson). Since 1997, a group of artists have been collaborating to sneak into the abandoned plant and document it before much of it was lost to redevelopment and time.
