A short film about dissociations, small moments of departure that we find ourselves in and how sometimes our thoughts take playful turns, written and animated by Alex Moy-Albrecht at DePaul University.

Wanderer is an exploration of what it means to lend allowance of psychic automatism to our perceptions, and the consequences of dissociative dependencies. It is a non-narrative, visual poem that moves through a lucid-esque dream sequence of a man at dinner, actuated by a drop of red wine. The piece works in three acts, pulling the man deeper into his own head, placing him in and out of non-realities, all pieced together through a single symbol - the red stain; that acts as both a catalyst to submerge himself deeper into his fantasies, as well as an anchor to pull himself out.
