Vagabondage is the third and final film in a series of shorts by Aaron Rose using his iPhone 4. Shot on location in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Prague, this is his most intimate film yet.
For many, travel represents romance and freedom, but for Rose it's like living the life of a vagabond. To fulfill one's wanderlust doesn't come without sacrifice, as its greatest risk is the loss of community, a disconnection from friends, lovers and family. This is the film's underlying theme.
Vagabondage also serves as an autobiographical account and celebration of relationships held between Rose and close friends, both old and new, the beauty in what they represent and where they stem from.
