The Speech Writer by Bani Abidi

Availability: In stock

The Speech Writer is a fictional documentary presented in the form of ten flip books. It follows a retired political speech writer who has become an idiosyncratic recluse, surrounded by his vast collection of speeches. His connection to the outside world takes the form of a daily broadcast from his home. We cannot hear him speak but witness instead a moment of ultimate freedom in the life of a man who formulated the rhetoric, visions, dreams, and declarations of others.
