Eden’s Edge


Presented with support from the Austrian Cultural Forum

Dir. Office for Narrative Landscape Design (O.N.L.S.D.), Austria, 2014. 61 min. Digital projection. Eden’s Edge is a nine-part hour-long film that follows a group of people who have retreated to the desert to reinvent their lives on the margins of society. The episodes feature bird’s-eye views of minimalistic scenes, meticulously arranged in gray desert sands. As the characters drag themselves through the sun-drenched backdrop, we hear their voices persistently tell of their fates: the schizo-shaman who has constructed a totem circle out of stones; a female artist who fled the city and created a repository for the traumas of combat veterans; the paranoid druggie who inscribes a giant spiral along classical lines of land art, and more.
