Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors is a fascinating documentary about the unseen infrastructure needed behind the Internet. This documentary looks at one such facility in New York City.

Lower Manhattan's 60 Hudson Street is one of the world's most concentrated hubs of Internet connectivity. Set in the dense, mixed-use neighborhood of Tribeca, the building's nondescript brick exterior conceals several network interconnection facilities where huge amounts of data are exchanged. This short documentary peeks inside, offering a glimpse of the massive material infrastructure that makes the Internet possible.
