Hoan Alone: Personal Stories from the Bridge
By Aaron Johnson
Milwaukee’s Daniel Hoan Memorial Bridge is the crown over Summerfest and has become one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. But it’s also a popular site for suicides. This animated documentary explores the issues of the bridge and suicide through three intimate interviews. Follow animator, Aaron Johnson, as he shares the stories of Dave, John, and Mary.
“By dispensing with traditional interview footage, Hoan Alone allows us to connect with the essential heartfelt narrative vaguely reminiscent of Waking Life.” ~Kurt Shrader (judge)
