Stiltsville is made up of 7 houses located in the middle of Miami, Florida's Biscayne Bay. 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.
