Director Statement

For years, I had been considering a no-dialogue film - and one with “close-up” as the dominating shot type. The idea was to show dramatic relations and the story mostly through face expressions. I wrote monologues for the actors to recite during the principal photography so that they could live their characters’ emotions naturally. So, even though no single word is voiced in the film, the script is verbal.
