Built from artifacts recovered from her own then her mother's storage closet, Confessions of a Compulsive Archivist follows the filmmaker's tragic-comic struggle to let go of a few things of obviously no use to her. Part found footage film, part camera-less video, it turns stuff that should have been thrown out long ago into a poignant study of the relationship between the creative imagination and our attachments, be they material or emotional.

“[One of] about a dozen superlative selections by women, [and an example of] an intriguing crop of new video works examining the medium's widespread, elemental function as a kind of experiential logbook.”
- David Balzer, Cinemascope
