DISTANCE

Directed by Isabel Fryszberg.

 

This short music animation is about the desire for intimacy and connection, at a time when it’s being challenged at every turn. “When I wrote this song, I was thinking about how our everyday handshake, social kiss, and hug have become dramatically altered now,” Fryszberg says. “It germinated from a place of longing for fearless touch, embrace, dance, and connection.”
