Simple Being

USA 2014 92’

DIRECTED BY: Marco Ferrari
SCREENPLAY BY: Marco Ferrari
PRODUCED BY: Chiara D’Alfonso, Susana Hornil
CAST: Sol Mason, Jasmin Radibratovic, Jeff Adler

Acting student Clive decides on an experiment – every week, he cripples a different sense: his hearing, speech and sight. The protagonist’s actions become an opportunity for experimentation also for the debutant in the director’s seat. Marco Ferrari neatly combines stylistic gymnastics with a narration typical to American mid-budget cinema. At the same time, his protagonist is firmly at the center of attention. Through his actions – naive to some, visionary to others – he is responsible for the most emotional moments of “Simple Being”.
