Talk to Me

Short Film, Jewish Film
Mark Craig
22 minutes


In 1985, Mark Craig bought an answering machine. He then kept every message it recorded for 20 years! "Talk To Me" is a personal life journey from long-haired graduate to grey-haired middle age, conveyed entirely by real answer machine messages recorded over two decades. Visuals comprise a large collage of photos and ephemera all shot in one continuous take.
