Living on the Fringes of Society


Ever thought about packing it up and moving into the wilderness like Henry David Thoreau in his classic book entitled Walden's Pond? Take a trip with Alec Soth as he documents people who have disappeared in America...

"Laure flammarion and Arnaud Uyttenhove, two young European filmmakers followed, the American photographer Alec Soth all over America during winter 2008, summer 2008 and spring 2009. Riding in the back of the artist's van, they drove more than 20 000 miles together going from one state to another, and from one season to another. The result is a 57 minutes movie about the photographer and his project, which was called 'How to disappear in America', about people who decided to withdraw themselves from society. The road trip offers a series of incredible meetings but it also tells the story of an introspective journey."
