Imagine I'm Beautiful is a psychological drama that dissects the fine line between self invention and destruction. The film slowly unfolds itself to shed light on the spectrum of mental illness and explores how far one will go to obtain the needs and desires we all share.

Directed with subtle, unobtrusive style by Meredith Edwards, the film is one of those great New York portraits, displaying both the excitement and the sinister side of the city. What begins as a deceptively simple fish out of water story, slow burns its way into your mind and heart.
— Chris Watt, "Watch This Space Film Magazine"

A haunting and empathetic examination into the murky corners of two women’s psyches.
Impressively fascinating, bold, and cunning.

Degeneration X uses live performance, film, motion graphics, illustration, and music to chronicle the different pockets of one man’s neurosystem. As Xavier drives through Charles Bonnet syndrome, the audience takes front seat on a surreal and rousing ride through the human mind. 

Director Meredith Edwards has done a very good job integrating the media and live action into a cohesive whole.
— Reviews Off Broadway
Bachar and Edwards should be lauded for both the size of their undertaking and the triumph of accomplishing it.

Degeneration X - Official Trailer

 
Director and company co-founder Meredith Edwards plays Simone, a striking brunette whose smoldering voice matches uniquely beautiful features. She represents Xavier’s “animal instincts,” and as such makes some of the strongest choices in the cast.
