A Rose from My Garden – Documentary

19 min. by Deborah Peretz, NY, NY

In the summer of 2017, mysterious stone figures sprang up along the Hudson River in Upper Manhattan.  Exquisitely balanced, powerful yet fragile – the “Sisyphus Stones,” as they have come to be known, are the creations of Uliks Gryka.  Uliks toils daily in what he calls his “garden of creation.”  As the garden grows, vandals occasionally come at night, destroying the figures, and leaving this modern-day Sisyphus with the daily task of rebuilding.
