The Man With His Fingers in His Ears



Keif Gwinn, Tom Michael Blyth

Short Film

The film follows an ambitious local journalist and her cynical camera operator trying to make a story about an extremely minor local celebrity who has chosen to switch off from the demands of the world. The story is told through a series of vox pop interviews which succeed in gathering the opinions of local residents at the flimsier end of journalism, whilst the growing pointlessness of her pursuit of the story is captured in occasional glimpses of the journalist's fading interest.
