Nobody Knows - A Documentary About Men
Our process is to conduct numerous telephone interviews, completely anonymously, with men across the country. We will then transcribe these interviews and use them as the script for various actors to perform. If you are interested you can visit our website at www.kino-f.com/nobodyknows to learn more about the project.
