I Am Another You
2017 ‧ Documentary ‧ 1h 22m
Eating garbage, dodging police, and hitching rides with strangers, award-winning Chinese filmmaker Nanfu Wang shares the streets with a young drifter named Dylan who left a comfortable home and loving family for a life of intentional homelessness. Fascinated by his choice and rejection of society's rules, Nanfu follows Dylan with her camera on a journey that takes her across America and explores the meaning of freedom - and its limits.

 

 


This program is co-presented with the International Documentary Association and the Occidental College Media Arts & Culture department.
