Strohecker, C. (MIT Media Laboratory)

      Viewers can see thoughts of different characters on all-night train ride in Eastern Europe. Depending on how and when you interact, you get different senses of who the characters are and what the story means. Documentary footage of Budapest intersperses enacted scenes to recreate a real-life story about how people manage to communicate even when they don't share a spoken language.
