Speak in Tongues

David Zamagni, Nadia Ranocchi
Italy, Poland 2015 / 22’
experimental

Speak in Tongues was made by the Italian artistic collective Zapruder, which was founded by a number of film directors in 2000. As the title suggests, this experimental work deals with the subject of language, but not in a literal sense. The collective presents six people who believe in their own artificial realities. It is not speech but rather the visual layer that provides cause for reflection on the nature and character of language.
