To Anyone Who Can Hear Me

  • slideshow_large


To Anyone Who Can Hear Me is a magical, vivid and poetic exploration of damaged human relationships. Nine passengers on a train must confront their fears, solitude and emotional emptiness. Each passenger has a different direction and all of them have something in common - their impotence to deal with their own emotions.

The story aims to establish a conversation with the audience about life: about men and women, their suffering and incomprehensible frustrations, their isolation at not being able to communicate their emotions to one another, their self-destruction, and most of all their powerless search for love and truth in a world with now answers.

To Anyone Who Can Hear Me is a film project characterised by its dramatic black and white photography accompanied by a haunting and evocative soundtrack. It is innovative in its structure and story-telling techniques and it breaks with conventional cinematic practice. The film takes a unique approach to the themes of love and isolation offering the audience the opportunity to be voyeurs of the suffering of others. Through this experience they are invited to reflect and look at their own lives with an honest eye.
