Toxi•City: A Climate Change Narrative (2016)

Set in on the US Eastern seaboard in 2020, Toxi•City follows six fictional characters whose lives have been transformed by sea-level change and flooding in an urban and industrialized region on America's North Atlantic Coast. Fictional testimonies are set against nonfictional accounts of actual deaths that occurred during Hurricane Sandy and other recent storms and floods. Toxi•City is a combinatory narrative film that uses computer code to draw fragments from a database in changing configurations every time it is shown. Just as with the conditions of ocean tides and tidal shores, the stories cycle and change without clear beginning or end. Rather, individuals grasp for meaning from fleeting conditions of a world in flux.
