HOW DO WE RELATE TO AND JUDGE THE WORLD AROUND US? WE ARE ALL TRAPPED WITHIN THIS SHELL OF SKIN; DESPERATE TO KNOW IF OTHER PEOPLE FEEL AND THINK AND EXPERIENCE THE SAME AS US; DESPERATE TO BE UNDERSTOOD, TO SHARE OUR INNER WORLDS, AND YET TERRIFIED TO DO SO. WHAT DO WE SHARE AND WHAT DO WE CHOOSE TO KEEP HIDDEN? FOR EXAMPLE WE HAVE ALL HAD A FANTASY ABOUT HITTING THE RUDE PERSON WHO PUSHED IN FRONT OF US IN THE QUEUE AND REFUSED TO APOLOGISE. HOPEFULLY WE DO NOT ACT UPON THOSE THOUGHTS, AND INSTEAD THIS PART OF OUR INNER SELVES REMAINS HIDDEN. BY RESTRAINING OUR DESIRES WE ARE ACCEPTED BY THE OTHERS AROUND US, AND DEEMED NOT TO BE A VIOLENT RISK THAT SHOULD BE IMPRISONED. BUT TO WHAT EXTENT SHOULD WE ALLOW OURSELVES AND OUR ACTIONS TO BE DICTATED BY SOCIETY. WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN THE INDIVIDUAL NEED TO EXPRESS AND THE COLLECTIVES NEED FOR DISCIPLINE?

 

 

THERE IS A REALITY TO THE MOMENT THAT ALLOWS US TO CONNECT WITH IT, AND IN TURN BE EFFECTED AND INFORMED BY IT. THIS FILM IS AN ATTEMPT TO BRING THE IMMEDIACY OF THE THEATRE BACK INTO THE CINEMA. TO BRING AN EMOTIONAL REALITY TO THE SCREEN, THAT TELLS A STORY THAT MOVES US, AND HOPEFULLY CAUSES US TO PAUSE AND THINK.

 

FOR 6 MONTHS I WORKED WITH EACH OF THE ACTORS TO DEVELOP THE CHARACTERS IN COMPLETE ISOLATION. FINALLY THE FIRST DAY OF FILMING ARRIVED, THE CAMERAS STARTED ROLLING AND THE CHARACTERS FINALLY MET FOR THE FIRST TIME.

 

COMPLETELY UNSCRIPTED AND TOTALLY IMPROVISED, WITH NO SPECIFIED PLOT POINTS, AND NO PREDETERMINED END POINT THE ACTORS WERE FREE TO LIVE TRUTHFULLY AS THEIR CHARACTERS IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES THEY FOUND THEMSELVES IN.

 

THANKS TO SOME REMARKABLY HONEST ACTING THE SUFFOCATING ATMOSPHERE UNRAVELS MANS WEAKNESS. THE FACADES START TO SLIP, AND EACH MAN INEVITABLY REVEALS TRUTHS ABOUT HIMSELF AS HE ATTEMPTS TO INVESTIGATE THE OTHER.
