EDLs often start at some time other than 00:00:00:00, like one hour. In your example, that looks like 2 hours. I believe that the EDL adapter has not yet been updated to use the global_start_time attribute on Timeline and instead uses this negative offset to preserve this offset in the record time of the track.

Hello everyone. I'm doing some small steps exploring OTIO as my time
Why is the timeline timecode in point represented as a negative
For example, I have a single event EDL called "short.edl":
001 001 V C 01:00:00:00 01:00:23:00 02:00:00:00
* some metadata
And this script:
import opentimelineio as otio
timeline = otio.adapters.read_from_file('short.edl')
The 02:00:00:00 timecode in the record column is represented as
-172800 in the converted.otio JSON file:
