Tell You a Joke, 2010

Video, 3 min 10sec
Netherlands 2012

It explores alternative beauty in miscommunication.

My experience of living in foreign countries and adapting myself to different cultures gave me an idea of showing positive side of miscommunication. I found that laughing at a joke and catching what is exactly funny in different cultures is more difficult than understanding the culture and language themselves.

The video captures reactions of my audience towards me and toward their partners, when I am telling them a funny joke.
