FILM: How To Be Alone
How to be Alone is a vivid collaboration between filmmaker Andrea Dorfman and spoken word artist Tanya Davis that uses music, poetry and whimsical animated images to explore the state of being alone. On the surface, the film is a kind of “how-to” manual for spending time by yourself. On a deeper level, it addresses the fundamental fact that we are all alone in some way, and confronts our feelings of loneliness with humor, hope and measured reflection.
