See the full film at: https://vimeo.com/239906495 "Eden Reclaimed", a movie I created this summer with my sister. It is a film that questions how Southwestern border inhabitants find a home in a space that is in constant flux. In a setting that has been historically redefined, can solace be found? The film visualizes an epic poem that celebrates a homecoming for Mexican and Mexican American desert wanders.

The Southwestern borderland reaffirms the paradox of a word: bound. A bound speaks of both a kinetic and unfettered movement, as well as a prohibiting bulwark. Looking at this transitory (yet seemingly still) life, all preconceived walls invite an underlying subversion. The decay of an edifice conceives a new space, and the definitions of contours speak an ephemeral tongue.
