Forgotten Squat: Inside The Gowanus Batcave

09.20.12 Andy Cush

Filmmaker 2e sent us this video today, featuring footage he took inside the abandoned Gowanus Canal power plant known as the Batcave. 2e is the guy behind the “5 Boroughs, 6 Months” film we covered in June, which strung 60 gigs of digital photographs into one four-minute filmic collage, and the Batcave video makes a fitting follow up. It features beautiful shots of the cave’s graffiti, and artistic implements of all kinds–doodles, broken-down bikes, empty paint cans, and lots of syringe–all set to a soundtrack by Ratatat. Gorgeous.
