Girl Walk // All Day, the debut feature film from Brooklyn-based director Jacob Krupnick, is an exuberant 77-minute dance adventure shot entirely in the streets and public spaces of New York City.  Dialogue free, the entire film is set to “All Day”, the most recent album by the mash-up DJ Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis), and follows three improvisational dancers - Anne Marsen (The Girl), Daisuke Omiya (The Gentleman) and John Doyle (The Creep) – as they embark on an urban adventure across NYC over the course of one long day.
