ABOUT

A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION

“Like a modern-day Jacques Tati, Lambert creates his own absurdist universe out of life’s funny moments,”

Joanna Hogg
Director of ‘Exhibition’

The MUTE Series is a collection of single-take miniatures that report on the vagaries of human behaviour. Casting a deadpan, mordant eye over mini-scenes of incongruity, it sees the funny side of greed, conformity, sloth and various other traits of modern life.

And MUTE is dumbstruck by all that it sees. “Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness” said Samuel Beckett. Best to do away with dialogue altogether. And thinking about it, the obtrusive movement of the camera is something of a stain on the simplicity of a scene. And what about the distraction of cut-cut-cut editing? The MUTE Series has done away with all these things and pledges allegiance to three strict rules:

RULE 1  no dialogue
RULE 2  no camera moves
RULE 3  only one shot

So far there are twelve MUTE films. There will be more.
