"Can you read my lips?": what a loaded question. This short film, co-written by Rachel Kolb, produced by Little Moving Pictures, and directed by David Terry Fine, reflects on the complexities of this mode of communication. It is based on the essay "Seeing at the Speed of Sound," originally published in Stanford magazine in 2013.
This short film was produced by three Stanford students (Alex Simon, Stephanie DePaula, and Carolyn Tan) for the Creative Activist Network's Bay Area Filmmaking Challenge in 2013, in which it won overall first place. During this five-day competition, seven student filmmaking teams filmed, edited, and produced a five-minute documentary about a range of subjects.
"Eavesdropping on the World of Sounds"
This story was originally produced for an episode of the Stanford Storytelling Project's radio show, State of the Human, in 2013. It was later illustrated by Ryoko Hamaguchi and made into a video by Justine Beed.
