#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 280 characters?

Although the film's title is VOICE, there is no dialogue and no music. Because I think that the film gets powerful when the audience's internal voices are added onto the screen.

I hope that the audiences enjoy the cinematic pleasure with VOICE.

#2: What do you want the Borrego Springs Film Festival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title?

VOICE is a no dialogue film, so which needs the audience's internal voices to be completed.

So please add your own voice onto the screen.

You may find that there is a universality of people in this world which cannot be described with the words.
