Before social media platforms like facebook, tiwtter and instagram there was ham radio. A network of radio operators would meet in the airwaves and with analogue machines they would connect bridging long distances and languages. In a basement packed with 2-way radio equipment, antennas, and fading black and white photographs Andre Sipos sits in front of what looks like a WWII communications post and after turning knobs and switches, a blast of interference, static and a distance voice in a foreign language emanate from the speakers. In this short film we travel through time to a post war era where communications were in the front line of war, a time that established communications as we know them today. SPEAKING INTO THE AIR is short creative documentary about a scientist and the time machine he built in his basement in an effort to keep in touch with a distant past.
