WORD COUNT

 

Word Count is a project comprising of a series of short films begun in 2016 which takes the following scenario as its premise:

In the near future, scientists confirm a direct correlation between the dramatically rising sea-levels and the amount of words that we speak.

Delegates from every nation of the world gather together to find a quick solution and resolve that each citizen of the world shall be rationed to 433 words per day. This comes to be known as Cage Law after John Cage’s 4”33’.

This drip, drip disaster-in-slow-motion, follows the lives of four characters trying to keep their heads above water, where every word counts. Bridget, a stand up comedian, Jennifer, a lawyer specialising in Cage Law, her husband David, an out of work radio DJ and Professor Sanchez, a radical intellectual who rejects the philosophy behind Cage Law.

To date eight shorts have been completed. To watch the full-length films please contact kasia(at)fudakowski.com
