Description

Accompanied by a searing musical score of deep electronica and jazz, If Mouth Could Speak is a poetic monologue slicing laser-deep into the brain of a young immigrant troubled by suicide. Amidst torrents of beat poetry and dizzying electronics, London becomes a woman whom with Danny unravels the hassle of urban life: sex, pollution, homesickness and isolation. As the night wears thin, Danny's bipolarity intensifies... This is his comatose brain going back and forth in time, coming back to life.
