PACKED IN A TRUNK:
THE LOST ART OF
EDITH LAKE WILKINSON

USA, 2016, 77 min., DCP | Michelle Boyaner

Like a fast-paced detective story, this documentary celebrates the life of Edith, a gifted and prolific lesbian artist who, in 1924, was committed to an asylum. All of Edith’s worldly possessions were packed into trunks and she was never heard from again, until her family resurrected her creative body of work.

Prolific artist Edith Lake Wilkinson’s great-niece, Jane Anderson (Emmy Award-winning writer & director) grew up surrounded by Edith’s paintings after her mother discovered trunks full of her work in their relative’s attic and rescued the art. This delightful film follows Jane and her spouse Tess in their efforts to find answers to the mystery of Edith’s buried life, return her art to Provincetown where she once lived and thrived, and have Edith’s contributions recognized by the art world.
