A film by Noah Hutton. Written by SJ Fowler
An experimental short film exploring how our internal and external languages collide. Following an unnamed protagonist through his daily life in the city of London, Enthusiasm examines sexual attraction, power, exhaustion, and the dichotomy between the body and the mind.
The result of a transatlantic collaboration between British poet SJ Fowler and American director Noah Hutton, and drawing from new techniques in analyzing internal monologues and self consciousness used by contemporary neuroscientists, Enthusiasm uses the potential of cinema to reveal the conflicts of inner and outer narrative.
Through innovative sound design, voiceover technique, and a sensitivity to its urban setting, we encounter the lurking tensions of contemporary life in their menacing, ambiguous, and intimate forms.
