Count from Zero to One Hundred: 2 is based on a section of the experimental novel ‘Count from Zero to One Hundred’ by Alan Cunningham.
Drawing on some of the themes of the novel, this short film explores the dangerous yet understandable sensation of feeling only in our own stubborn and static bodies, no matter how much love or intimacy is offered; of being unresponsive and defensive to touch and of being damaged, in ways only hinted at. It ends, however, having also hinted at a sense of the always enduring potential for - perhaps even need for, however damaged and defensive - touch and openness to an equally dangerous but ultimately joyful intimacy.
