Driftless (2017) is a film that is the product of friendship. Two friends, one in front of the camera, one behind, spend 2 years together, as one endures what adds up to be the hardest year of their life. This film does not aim to account for the dramatic life events which cause some of what the film does witness, it does not focus on gender transition, Lyme Disease, or any of the interpersonal dynamics which cause great stress in my friend's life as a central subject. What it does aim to account for is the proximity of friendship. Through our relationship, which is not always disguised in favor of a more continuous edit, we are able to bear witness to another way of life, one of the homesteader, the artist, the queer parent. The camera becomes a way to hold my friend through their troubles and their joys as they manage their search for home.

This film really is everything the critics have been saying. Stupendous, visually spellbinding, brilliantly acted and very funny.
