Near Silence

2010 ­ 8 minutes ­ Directed by Ana de Lara

Near Silence is a moving story about what it means to love and the difficult choices it can force you to make. Roger is a former concert pianist debilitated by the later stages of Huntington’s disease. His loving and devastated wife, Fay, is struggling to find meaning in their existence. Inspired by Huntington’s chorea symptoms (irregular movements that mimic dancing) director Ana de Lara incorporates poetry of motion in this dramatic short film.
