Hanalei Ramos and Jiny Ung – Cycles

Jersey City/Queens

For their project, Cycles, Hanalei Ramos and Jiny Ung created a documentary-style animated short based on the oral histories of residents living in Jersey City, New Jersey and Woodside, Queens. Over the course of ten weeks, Jiny and Hanalei interviewed and shadowed residents from these neighborhoods at their laundromats. Due to the highly diverse populations of all neighborhoods, the narrative unfolded as a larger conversation around personal migration, survival, and belonging in the New York area amidst a recession.
