Documentary filmmaker Nanfu Wang buys a one-way ticket to Florida with the goal of documenting every conversation she has along the way. A few days into her trip, she meets a handsome, free-spirited traveler named Dylan, a young man who has rejected his comfortable, middle-class upbringing to lead a vagabond lifestyle of absolute freedom and mobility. Nanfu decides to follow him across the state, eating out of garbage cans, dodging the police, and hitching rides with strangers as he embraces a life of intentional homelessness. But as the director digs deeper, Dylan’s rebellion is gradually revealed to be darker and altogether more complex. Unfolding like a low-key mystery, I Am Another You is an incisive and powerful examination of the myth and bitter realities of America’s rugged individualism. (Dir. by Nanfu Wang, 2017, USA, 80 mins., Not Rated)
