Code Talker, 2001

Code Talker is a video portrait series, in which selected people express themselves in their mother tongues (here Danish and Navajo) in predetermined (film) settings on topics relating to them. Text inserts in English provide information about the person and the topic. The story itself remains encapsulated in foreign speech, attention is drawn to otherwise inconsequential levels of communication: the gestural language, the hands, posture, eyes, face, the tonality of speeking.
