Alone Scott Northrup USAS8mm > digital10 min2021
Alone is a textual film adaptation of a zine I created with the same title, incorporating the first reel of Super 8 film I shot as a teenager. The zine version of Alone contains a suite of sad-boy cut-up poems made from a hypermasculine American war novel that I found in a Finnish recycling center. – Scott Northrup
