Description

I AM ANOTHER YOU

(Nanfu Wang, USA, 2017, 80 minutes)

OFFICIAL TRAILER

Having already dodged the Chinese state authorities during the making of her award-winning documentary Hooligan Sparrow, filmmaker Nanfu Wang enters another shadowy realm when she meets a charismatic young homeless man named Dylan in Florida. Fascinated by the Mormon-raised drifter’s decision to live on the street, Wang follows Dylan as he hitchhikes, scrounges, begs and maintains a state of perpetual motion. At first, Dylan strikes us as a kind of contemporary Kerouac character: a thoughtful and sensitive maverick who has turned his back on conventional society. But then something else emerges: is Dylan’s choice actually a perfectly reasonable response to living with madness? And is it really even a choice?

*Screening with An Other (Nils Caneele, Canada, 2016, 16 minutes)

Co-presented wtih Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival and POV Magazine
