Language of strangers

Short film Directed by Mireia Farran

cinematography, 2020

Language of Strangers is a visual interpretation of the emotions evoked when two people speak different mother tongues. The short film candidly combines the complexity of frustrations that arise from the language barrier within a relationship with the simplicity of the raw human attraction that they feel for one another.
