Tell Me (2021)

Original title: Räägi ära

Documentary Duration 75:00


On the first days of worldwide lockdowns, film makers from 15 countries set up phone lines for people to leave anonymous messages from their confinement. Starting from the very beginning when the Chinese had not yet determined the origin of the virus, to the Brazilians demanding quarantine from their leaders months later; the documentary combines hundreds of voices from around the world, into a poetic documentary. It is a whirlwind of emotions crossing all boundaries of culture and nationality by fresh directors from around the world who first met in Werner Herzog's masterclass in the Peruvian jungle in 2018. A true experiment of cinema, the documentary serves the viewer a portrait of humanity in isolation by creating a space after the tone, a void where people could leave anything they wished to be free of, crystalizing a moment in time the whole world experienced together.
