I S O L A T I O N is a short film directed by David Guersan and Mathieu Bernat about a stranger leaving his modern lifestyle for a spiritual journey through incredible Scottish landscapes. Throughout the film, the stranger works to uncover the meaning of solitude and isolation. The piece was shot while traveling for two weeks in a leaky van through remote parts of Scotland.

A friend sent me a write up in Outside Magazine about ISOLATION “find clarity and break away from society”. The four minute film is soaked in visually arresting imagery. The ending punchline resonates with me most, “It’s not what we get in life that makes us happy. I think it’s who we become.”
