A young boy, on the outer of the outer, in a nameless place, discovers the faster he goes, the closer he can get to outrunning his loneliness. Based on the poem ‘The Rider’ by Palestinian-American poet Naomi Shihab Nye. The Echo, directed by Michael Gupta, is part one in an anthology exploring the delicacy of youth. THE RIDER A boy told me if he roller-skated fast enough his loneliness couldn’t catch up to him, the best reason I ever heard for trying to be a champion. What I wonder tonight pedaling hard down King William Street is if it translates to bicycles. A victory! To leave your loneliness panting behind you on some street corner while you float free into a cloud of sudden azaleas, pink petals that have never felt loneliness, No matter how slowly they fell.
