The Pine Barrens is an exploration of a landscape and its people – equally regarded by outsiders through a prism of lore and mystery.Today, the New Jersey Pinelands are an anomaly and a place governed by contradiction—an almost pristine wilderness nestled within the most densely populated state in the nation. The Pine Barrens is an ongoing and evolving project manifesting as several works including a series of live performances in collaboration with The Ruins of Friendship Orchestra scoring selected scenes from the film. Kessler is a Philadelphia-based artist and 2015 Pew Fellow who runs the production company Studioscopic; his first feature-length documentary, If You Break The Skin, You Must Come In, about artist Zoe Strauss was produced by the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.
