Bonnaroo commissioned Already Alive to tell the story of the music and arts festival. The film is an intimate lens into the incredible community bounded by music, elevated connection, and limitless possibility. Through a montage of Bonnaroo’s many voices and images, the piece sheds light on the festival’s many promises: the promise of experimentation, self-discovery, and love. It begs the question of what the world would look like if we lived our daily lives in this way.
