In Edge of Alchemy the silent-era actors Mary Pickford and Janet Gaynor are seamlessly appropriated from their early films of the 1920's and cast into a surreal epic with an upending of the Frankenstein story and an undercurrent of hive collapse. Comprised of over 6000 handmade collages, Edge of Alchemy is the third in a trilogy looking at the psychological terrain of women’s inner worlds. Music and sound design by Lech Jankowski (Brothers Quay).
