These works—color and black-and-white photographs, film stills, and video installations—were made in conjunction with Grannan’s first feature length film, The Nine, which debuts in early 2016. The film takes its name from South Ninth Street, known as “the Nine,” in the town of Modesto. Shot over four years, with the help of the local community, it draws attention to a group of Californians trying to survive in this post-apocalyptic-looking landscape. Her footage gives a dignified face to the masses that compose America’s growing homeless population. The film draws attention, for instance, to Kiki, a drifter whose active imagination acts as form of escapism. Grannan’s candid interviews with her bring forth thoughtful ruminations on the loss of innocence and the universal need to belong.
