2015 | HD Video | 12'32"
The short film A conversation is a risk to lose your own opinion consists of three short dialogues in which two characters discuss a problem. About a new washing machine, a favorite Italian restaurant and an extra chair. In every dialogue one of the characters tries to convince the other character of a certain way to deal with that problem. A solution however that in the end proves not to beneficial to neither of them.
The two characters wear costumes based on Russian Avant-Garde costumes. Whereas these Russian costumes were part of both an artistic and political revolution, in A conversation is a risk to lose your own opinion they are only used to discuss seemingly trivial problems.
