“She may have been among them but she could never be one of them. She was without inclusion for-as-much as she was not “one of the girls” she wasn’t “one of the guys.” She was an outsider gazing in, endlessly comfortless, while they wished they had what it took to be less like the others and more like her.”

The need to belong, or to feel a sense of belonging, is intimately woven into the most primitive parts of our human nature. But as much as we crave acceptance, recognition and love, there are those who tread their own paths, who go their own ways, and who are themselves only when they are truly by themselves. For them, navigating our complicated world of relationships and connections must seem like a never-ending journey, one that can be frustrating and yet- like some of our favourite French New Wave films-surprisingly revelatory. Unable to understand, we can only observe; unable to tell, we can only show.
