No more words, no other thoughts. About the rituals of speaking.
Part I: Richard and Felix
short film, 2012, HD, colour, stereo sound, 20 min.
Two men meet by chance on a quiet afternoon at Speaker's Corner in the Hyde Park, London. While one is rehearsing a speech for an upcoming audition, the other is walking past, and stops to listen out of curiosity.
They start chatting, they shake hands, they talk a little more. Very soon they moot philosophical questions about justice and injustice, ethical standards and values - until it seems time to part again.
"Richard and Felix" is the first part of a cycle of works which look into different aspects of rhetoric.
