Play Me Something
Tilda Swinton stars in a playful and ingenious cine-essay on the art of storytelling, from art critic John Berger and filmmaker Timothy Neat.
Director: Timothy Neat
Tilda Swinton stars in a playful and ingenious cine-essay from art critic John Berger (Ways of Seeing) and author/filmmaker Timothy Neat.
Berger himself plays a mysterious storyteller who regales waiting passengers at the tiny Hebridean airport of Barra with wild tales of Venetian peasants. Mixing myriad textures and sources – colour, black and white, 16mm, 35mm and still photographs – Play Me Something is a meta-textural meditation on storytelling, people and places.
