Seven directors from the fields of theatre, cinema, documentary and television were invited to play a game with three rules. They were each requested to rehearse the phrase “I want you to trust me” with the same actress and produce a film of this interaction. I provided a rehearsal space, a film crew and editing facilities. The seven films are combined into a feature-length film and displayed asynchronously on 3, 5 or 7 monitors. The duration of each film ranges from 3 to 25 minutes. VIDEO COMING SOON.
