Hindsight was filmed on Governors Island National Monument. The main film site is an old residential community called "Brick Village". Today this village is completely abandoned and peopled only by the loud cries of sea gulls. This decaying community strangely echoes the ravages of the current crisis. Located close to the financial institutions of Wall Street, these dilapidated places recall the unemployment, impoverishment and bankruptcies rocking the United States. The richest country in the world is increasingly marked by huge economic disparities. A sign of the times, the decrepitude is a metaphor for the erosion of American social values.

Hindsight a été filmée sur Governors Island National Monument. Le site principal du tournage est une ancienne communauté résidentielle appelée "Brick Village". Elle est aujourd’hui entièrement désaffectée et peuplée par des goélands aux cris assourdissants. La déchéance de cette communauté semble étrangement faire écho aux ravages de la crise actuelle. Situés à proximité des institutions financières de Wall Street, ces lieux délabrés ne sont pas sans évoquer le chômage, l’appauvrissement et les banqueroutes qui secouent les États-Unis. Le pays le plus riche du monde est de plus en plus marqué par de fortes disparités économiques. Signe des temps, cette décrépitude nous montre métaphoriquement l’effritement des valeurs sociales américaines.
