Havas NY’s pro bono campaign for the upcoming Brooklyn Film Festival (June 4-13) includes this spot, “Expedition,” in which the simple act of grocery shopping is dramatized in a post-apocalyptic style as a man prepares to venture out into an eerily vacant NYC neighborhood. In light of the pandemic, quarantines and lockdowns, a  parting super reads, “If last year was a film, it would be playing at the Brooklyn Film Festival.

Ben  Quinn, creative director at Hemingway Films, directed this and the other TV spot in the campaign, one of the first creative executions from Dan Lucey since he became the agency’s CCO.
