Marginalia 2012 - present
Series of portrait documentary feature films, audio recordings, photos, personal belongings, and an online database.
The title of this project, Marginalia, refers to the personal side notes added to the established content of a book. Likewise, this work intends to collect personal histories of marginalized groups and to bring their invisible stories and histories to the foreground. Each documentary film is created as an invitation into the intimate space of one character’s home and his or her life-story. Through this close connection with the viewer, a window opens up to the history that each character has lived and its influence on the events happening now. The past informs the present as these stories unfold.
