“Active Passive Passage Conversation” is a two-minute video that deals with people’s inability to communicate with each other in common situations. How we speak beside one another, do not listen to what is really said, and do not say what we really mean. A big problem in everyday life, for far too many. Visually the work is made in a colourful, highly contrasted style, with characters reminding us of past decades. The dialogue is created only from cut-out lines of movies from the 40s, 50s and 60s.
