“A sponsored project of Film Independent, “speaking.” is a 20-minute absurdist comedy film satirizing the self-absorbed epic cinema of the past.”

“Speaking is an award-winning absurdist comedy short film about the first cavewoman ever to speak. A satire of classic “male-centric” cinema and the self-importance of historical epics. A contemplation on the meaning of meaning, and the silliness of man’s structures. Because what is life but a fat poop in your hand, anyway?”
