Noise and Knowledge starts with an instruction: three performers are asked to take turns reading a book that contains a script for two roles - the interviewee, Welton Santos, and the interviewer, Sofia Caesar. The script, based on an interview Caesar conducted with Santos (in 2014, São Paulo, Brazil), is read in a way that the performers constantly shift who plays each role. Starting from a talking head shot, the resulting video is a document of this performance, and the camera movements and settings result from the performers' interpretations of the script...

A Tongue Called Mother depicts the relationship between language, gestures and affiliation. Working with the 16mm camera as an investigative tool, the film follows the daily gestures and words of three generations of ‘mother-daughter’ (the mother, the grand-mother and the niece of the filmmaker).
