Shut The Mouth
2010

73 min. - Video
Featuring Matt Nesse
Music by Ali Jaafar

Shut The Mouth involves changing seasons and one mind set adrift amidst the turbulent arena of contemporary life. This work embodies a semi-narrative thrust that is re-contextualized via a non-narrative documentary approach. Inspired in part by early films including work by the Lumière Brothers, Shut The Mouth offers images as a mesmeric motif, or cinema as a search for new perception. Working in said modes, Shut The Mouth deals aesthetically with human isolation and meandering attempts to cure it.
