At the end of Wash­ing­ton Boule­vard, where the streets of Los Ange­les merge into the ocean, the Venice Pier begins. The rough con­crete pier braves Pacif­ic storms and pro­vides still­ness and sta­bil­i­ty to its vis­i­tors. Here, we meet two immi­grants who take us on their jour­ney through his­to­ry. Although we get to see beach girls and fish­er­men, tourists and strollers, we are never quite sure whose story belongs to which fram­ing. BOULEVARD’S END visu­al­izes memory and obliv­ion in an extra­or­di­nary artis­tic approach.
