Edgewood, HD video, color, sound, 20’, 2019

Set in a private residence in an affluent community east of San Diego, the film Edgewood unfolds around environmental scientist Iris, a visitor who is treading unfamiliar ground. While exploring the house and neighborhood, she is confronted with unsettling news reports and objects that attest to colonial and local histories that shape the Southern California landscape. By forging connections between objects found on the premises and features of the surrounding sites, Edgewood produces a fragmentary portrait of the region’s social ecologies.
