  • We live in a busy world and isolation seems to be the only way to escape the buzz of lists, inspirational catch phrases and reminders to upgrade now! The peace of ignoring the phone may be bliss, but what about when we get what we ask for and are forgotten altogether? The director mulls over the bittersweet reality of escaping. This is a video about wanting to be alone and being lonely, a meditation on the cult of individuality and independence in our anxious urban world.
