An exploration of loneliness for Supernaive by director and photographer Antoine Bal (previously featured here). Shot on 16mm in one of the most densely populated city in the world, “Be My Friend” meanders between dream and reality through 90’s direct-to-video aesthetics and feelings of estrangement that anyone can relate to.
