Things Left Unsaid (2004)
3 minute silent film (looped), Super 8 transferred to DVD
I asked my parents to speak into a 8mm movie camera about their feelings and emotions of me as an adult, interlaced with memories of things past; things which have been left unsaid. When the camera was filming I left the room and as the camera doesn't record sound the frustration of never quite knowing what my parents feel is still there. The only evidence of their emotions is found in their gestures and facial expressions.
