Alone Together was created 100% remotely utilizing the arts and talents of the involved filmmakers, each of whom communicated exclusively over Zoom during the making of this film. Despite the obstacles and arduous circumstances, they each chose to make art. Great films have the ability to bring comfort to us, make us look inward, and show us something about ourselves. It is our hope that this film does just that.
