A Catalyst for Global Cooling:
This project is founded on an aesthetic engagement with natural phenomena. We hope to sensitize people to their surroundings and in particular to the changes that are occurring as a result of our arrogant land management practices. This film focuses on the use of road salt and the subsequent proliferation of Phragmites australis. A plant that is aggressively changing our wetland ecosystems.
Shadowlands will foster a healthier relationship between the viewer and their natural surroundings, which is so important in a time when the environment needs fierce advocates.
