This Is What It's Like to Read Lips
Dec 31, 2015
How do you use one sense to do the work of another? Can You Read My Lips? is a short film about the imprecise art of lip-reading based on the essay “Seeing at the Speed of Sound,” by Rachel Kolb, who narrates and stars in the video. “Lipreading...is an inherently tenuous mode of communication,” she explains. “When I watch people's lips, I am trying to learn something about sound when the eyes were not meant to hear.” This film was directed by David Terry Fine and produced by Little Moving Pictures.
