The follow up of a three years project conducted with inmates from a high security prison in Romania, W4D is an essay about language and its capacity to simultaneously communicate and hide issues connected to guilt and responsibility. The interviews with the inmates are reduced to key words, the complexity of their condition is synthesized in fake casting sessions. Shot throughout the prison, those are depicting the inmates as struggling heroes from Greek tragedies, while simultaneously mapping the space of the institution and its semiotic, relevant for the social engines of crime and punishment. The English version of the Romanian spoken texts has a strong graphic presence, stressing once more the fact that language is the key character of the video.
