Living Marginal Project

After moving from Chicago to Northfield, Minnesota, in 2010, Cornejo Sotelo became increasingly interested in developing production methodologies that foster collaboration. As a result, in early 2012, she embarked on the “Living Marginal Project,” a trilogy of films that engages participants as co-creators. Intended to function as a series of audiovisual meditations on belonging, the trilogy of films traces the experience of distinct communities in Northfield that are removed from the social, political, and geographic heart of the town.
