So To Speak

Jacqueline Goss

2000, 21:00 minutes, colour, English


A girl and her teacher learn to identify and use the fixtures of speech as they move deeper into domestic space; their relative positions shift accordingly. Drawing from texts by and about Helen Keller, Genie the "wild child," and Angel at My Table author Janet Frame, So To Speak is structured as a three-part tour of the house and grounds of language.
