ASBURY PARK EDITION
(((RADAR ) ))
Rising from the ashes is something we know a little bit about here in the City by the Sea.
Director/Writer Robert Andersen’s award-winning short film ASBURY PARK continues to shine it’s message of hope from coast to coast.
We experience that story told in the short film”Asbury Park” - of the parallel struggle & renewal of both a town & the film’s main character Colin, brilliantly played by Chance Harlem Jr.. Strikingly beautiful, the film’s rich imagery & solid editing suggest it’s possible to right the wrongs of one’s past.
