STAND HERE AT THE EDGE
When viewing a movie, what we know can foreclose the possibility of vision. ’Stand here at the Edge’, tries to construct an epistemological break, by simply suggesting to close ones eyes and challenge the entitlement and “knowledge” that so often comes with the familiarity of our gaze. "Stand here at the edge/ Almost all thinking/ attributes to this land/ the virtues of a People./ Yet the properties of this thought/ of this language/ of this gaze/ have not been the properties of this land./ Close your eyes/ An underestimated potential/ lies in this vagueness/ an uncertainty of image." The film was shot at the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation’s Dance Competition in 2006.
