23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

A surprising audiovisual allegory on communication, following cable technicians in different countries, as they visit their customers. Each client they call on provides a glimpse into their own individual universe. An insightful comment that reveals the obvious, through subtle, sharp irony: despite the abundance of our tools to communicate, we still inhabit a modern-day Tower of Babel, an ordered discordance of personalities and perspectives.
