Programmers' Notebook: On Solitude

Series Site

The latest in a recurring series in which BAM’s film programming team responds to a thought-provoking theme.

Inspired by Vitalina Varela, the breathtaking new film from Portuguese titan Pedro Costa, we’re recalling the often profound, illuminating ways that filmmakers have rendered the experience of solitude on screen. As the act of being alone with oneself can deepen our understanding of both ourselves and the world, these rich, insightful films are not just about loneliness, but also the qualities of strength, fortitude, resilience, character, and self-discovery that often accompany it.
