I Am Another You

(I Am Another You)

Young free-thinking Dylan lives in the streets of his own free will but does not see himself as homeless. He drifts through life without any apparent problems. But what price is he actually paying for his freedom?

Documentarian Nanfu Wang met Dylan purely by chance. Like everyone else, she fell at once for his charisma, his big smile, and the easy way he makes friends. She decided to follow him with her camera during his aimless roaming around the USA. She finds the sense of freedom and joy he gets from breaking unwritten rules the more interesting because she herself is from nondemocratic China. But this portrait of a charming drifter isn’t just a tribute to free-thinking and testing the bounds of freedom, because when the director starts looking at the reasons someone might leave a well-situated family, it emerges that Dylan’s desire for freedom is inseparable from his severe psychological problems.

China's one child policy has left scars that did not heal even after it was abolished in 2015. Almost every Chinese family carries them, and some of them go far beyond the country's borders.
