New Friends




I met Libby and Mateo around 2pm this past Thursday. We said goodbye on Sunday around 4am after stuffing our faces, jumping around in a techno club, and taking massive dumps on the dullest bar in Madrid. During our short time together, we talked about our separated parents, our travel dreams, romances, and drugs. The whole purpose of the documentary is to see how well strangers can connect and Libby and Mateo are testaments to the magic spark strangers create with one another. I feel so close with them yet they don’t know everything about me, my bad habits, my idiosyncrasies, my deep fears. They’re giving me the energy to carry out this documentary and spark more magic. Libby and Mateo, the world is more genuine, exciting, and fun because you two are here.
