The Rest is Silence

Prompt: Silence


On first viewing, I thought this unusual short film, made by UCLA students in 1958, was a contemporary film student submission, done in the style of the 50s and with a theme that resonates today: How automation and technology fill our lives with “noise” and how we often sacrifice self-awareness and intimacy for convenience and high tech.

  1. This is interesting. It made me think of the fact that there’s rarely “silence” anymore. The only time I think I’ve felt I’ve experienced it was during the winter when we had so much snow fall in a short time it shut everything down and I went outside of there were not sounds of cars on the highway, etc….nothing. It was kind fo nice. 🙂
