The Suburban Trilogy

Three films about girlhood and the immigrant dream. Veteran found footage filmmaker Abigail Child is well known for her radical reworking of established cinematic and cultural codes through an idiosyncratic use of montage and disjunctions of sound and image. This feature-length project renews these concerns with three distinctive films that move between home movie, found footage and documentary material – a fascinating anthropological collage that examines myths of gender and national identity, as well as themes of family, memory, class and history.
