Director Statement

Marginalites is the third short film in the collaborative short film series HOW WE LIVE TOGETHER, created with acclaimed actor Bill Sage, and with audio management by producer JG Thirlwell. The film series unfolds French philosopher Roland Barthes contemplations on the history of idiorrythmic living formats and societal isolation through the lives of monks. these short films deal with the process of the pandemic and understanding the implications of isolation this has on the individual during times of stress, transformation and upheaval , and what the effects are on the human condition, our psyche and our emotional development/mental health. Though working with philosophical text, we gage an overview and analytical view that we can transform creatively and intellectually into documents of our time. In Marginalities, Sage's monologue reading unfolds notions of the margenalized in society, what it means to be outcast by choice or by economic or political reasons, in various forms, i.e. priests, monks, homeless, race and gender, cultism, and above all, to be experiencing isolation within oneself, where loneliness is the internal version of marginalization.
