About

SECONDARY CURRENTS is a film about the relationships between the mind and language. Delivered by an improbable narrator who speaks an extended assortment of nonsense, it is an "imageless" film in which the shifting relationships between voice-over commentary and subtitled narration constitute a peculiar duet for voice, thought, speech, and sound. A kind of comic opera, the film is a dark metaphor for the order and entropy of language and has been the subject of a number of articles on the use of language in the arts. Percussion by Jim Meneses. "Prizbah ke no panz fatundo. Elmo cheshkadashi par lo biorn fatooshka! Como cinquema no delamyero sima disi, si cueja filidistro cuamchano mirichi-vasi komino sano dimensia!" – M'hidradane Vododook
