Film night: Somewhere to Disappear (2010)
Somewhere to Disappear is a 57 minute documentary in which, American photographer Alec Soth is the protagonist.
We follow him on his search for men who live on the margins of society. People who ran away from their natural environment, to find their own world. As modern day hermits, they find peace in unaffected places of the country, whether it be a cabin in the mountains, a dark cave or in the expansive desert. Each of these people chose to live in a different way.
The film captures Alec during the preliminary stage of his project. It guides us towards the rare and intriguing characters that inhabit his photos and shines a new light on the myths and contradictions of todays America.
Director: Laure Flammarion and Arnaud Uyttenhove
