The film represents these fourteen sectional lines, with video panels for each track displaying trains as they enter & leave the station on Thursday, May 20th, 2021, between 5:24 pm & 5:27 pm, visually organizing the cacophony & chaos of the city's rush hour.

Developed for Associate Professor Martin Hogue's LA 6940 The City in Film seminar, this film documents three minutes of real-time in Boston's Park Street Station. With ten underground lines passing through the station and a pedestrian concourse to Downtown Crossing's four lines, the station is one of the most structurally and choreographically complex in the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) system.
