Intentional Communities

Author: Lisa Marie Patzer

The difference between an intentional and non-intentional community has been on my mind a lot recently.  This is because I am directing and producing a short film, called a.k.a. Profile Glitch, about three women who meet at an intentional community.

Even though Marty, Maeve, and Johanna are from completely different backgrounds with wildly different personalities, they become good friends because of the unique social environment at the intentional community.

The characters eventually leave the commune and reconnect online.  Their friendships are pulled into question by the different dynamics the online environment creates.

At Penn, there are many strong intentional communities.  Which ones do you intentionally partake in?
