I AM ANOTHER YOU

When director Nanfu Wang moves to the U.S., a birthday trip to Florida leads her to a chance encounter with a life-changing drifter. Intrigued by his livelihood of chosen homelessness, she accompanies 22-year-old Dylan on the streets to experience eating from the garbage, sleeping in the park, and observing complete strangers’ fascination with Dylan’s mission and unprompted willingness to give him a helping hand. As a Chinese native, Nanfu always admired the storied symbol of freedom America represents and the power its people have to create their own futures. She witnesses that spirit in her shoeless companion, who is fearless of consequences and content living as a citizen of the world. Over time, she discovers Dylan’s carefree, wanderlust motives are riddled with layers of rebellion, vices, and inner demons he can no longer suppress. I AM ANOTHER YOU offers a unique perspective of life outside the norm and sheds encouraging light on the power of human connection. —A.B.
