With our attention on wihat is and will be an amazing installation by 2x cover artist Swoon at the Brooklyn Museum, "Submerged Motherlands," that opens Friday, April 11, we wanted to take a look back at the fantastic documentary short that Upper Playground produced for the "The Run UP" that featured a great piece on Swoon.
