Silencio, por favor!

What do you do when everyone in the world loses their voice? You make a silent film, duh!

La Antenna, is a silent film made in 2007 by an Argentinian director and cinematographer Esteban Sapir using very lo-fi production methods. The most intriguing detail of the film were the subtitles. Can you believe that! They became more than just words on a moving image, they interact with the actors and the environment. I couldn't find a clip with a good example of the typography, but if you skip to 1:02 in the video you'll see one example. Also, there is some nudity in the clip if you wish to watch it in it's entirety.

If you're interested and have time, the whole film is on youtube and here's part one:
