Margaret Rorison is a filmmaker and curator from Baltimore, Maryland. Her work often develops from extensive walks through rural and urban landscapes, combining memories, field recordings and text. She is interested in the potentials of storytelling through the use of 16mm projection and sound and often projects her films along other experimental sound artists. Her work has screened at The Ann Arbor Film Festival, CROSSROADS, Images Festival, Mono No Aware VI & VII, Sonic Circuits Festival and Microscope Gallery. She is the co-founder and director of the experimental film and workshop series, Sight Unseen and has been a member of The High Zero Foundation since 2011.
