Director's statement

Director's statement

We learn as we age we've learned nothing, and my body still aches. I started writing this film in 2011. I was journaling alone at restaurants all across the city in a notebook, frantically and constantly, trying to find my voice...which is daunting and heavy and seemingly impossible, still. I grew up watching Now and Then and Almost Famous on repeat. I wanted something like that to exist featuring someone who looked and felt like me, and I wanted to celebrate the relationship between music and mental health - which I plan to touch on consistently as a filmmaker. The Things We Do When We're Alone is an ode to the music of my generation and how important it has been to me, and everyone on this team. We're all so excited to have made this film and I hope you not only enjoy the film, but become a part of it.
