Gimme Some Truth: Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase: I Am Another You

Sun, Nov 5 / 4 pm
Directed by Nanfu Wang
2017, USA, 80 min
Manitoba Premiere

Introduction with director Rhayne Vermette.

Chinese filmmaker Nanfu Wang sets out to explore the underbelly of American street life and meets Dylan, a charismatic young man who has left behind a comfortable life to live on the streets in Florida. Fascinated by his choice to reject society’s rules, Wang follows Dylan with her camera on a journey that takes her across America, exploring the meaning and limits of freedom and peeling back the layers of Dylan’s history in the process.

Plays with Domus / Dir. Rhayne Vermette, 2017, Canada, 15 min / This is the story of the godlike architect, Carlo Mollino, animated within the desk space of failed architect, Rhayne Vermette. Made, with love on 16mm, 35mm and Super 8, this classic Pygmalionesque tale investigates intersections between cinema and architecture.

Presented in partnership with the Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase.

Reviews

While initially seeing Dylan as “a symbol of the free America I’d always heard about,” as she peels away some of the surface thrills of his existence she arrives at a more complicated understanding of his fragility.
