Stiltsville: Miami's historic past or inevitable future?
Stiltsville is made up of 7 houses located in the middle of Miami, Florida's Biscayne Bay. Built above the sea by some of Miami's first residents, they are some of the last of their kind in the world due to increasingly impactful natural disasters.
Shot on a vintage camcorder with Hi8 VHS tapes on location, in this video essay I contemplate the future of the city I was born into. Stiltsville may be a relic of a bygone area, but it could serve as a model for living sustainably when the tides finally do rise over paradise.
