Promo Trailer for Mark Webber's Personal Film 'The Place of No Words'
"Where do we go when we die?" That's the question at the heart of this. One film from this year's Tribeca Film Festival that we're keeping a close eye on is actor / director Mark Webber's latest feature, The Place of No Words. This deeply personal film stars real-life couple Mark Webber and Teresa Palmer, and their son Bodhi Palmer. The film examines that unanswerable question posed by three-year-old Bohdi and takes them on an imaginative adventure that explores how we cope with dying, and the love, laughter, and pain we can find within it. The original title of this was Freeka Reeka Sheeka Deeka and the Big Battle in the Forest, which is kind of awesome, but it makes sense for them to choose something different now. Also starring Eric Christian Olsen, Nicole Elizabeth Berger, Anna Schafer, Phoebe Tonkin, and Sarah Wright. This looks fantastic! I'm a big, big fan of Webber's films and I can't wait to check this one out soon.
Here's the first promo trailer for Mark Webber's The Place of No Words, originally from Vimeo:
"Where do we go when we die?" It is this simple, but unanswerable question from a precocious three-year old that kicks off an epic journey as the small lad leads his family on an imaginative adventure through fantastic lands filled with mythic creatures. Told through the eyes of both the father (Mark Webber), who is battling a terminal illness, and also his young son (Bodhi Palmer), The Place Of No Words story moves seamlessly between the world as we know it and a shared fantasy, exploring the laughter and pain, fear and wonder that people experience as they confront and cope with death. The Place of No Words is both written and directed by American actor / filmmaker Mark Webber, director of the films Explicit Ills, The End of Love, The Ever After, and Flesh and Blood previously. The film just premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last month. There's no US release date set yet - stay tuned for any more updates. First impression?
Very interested in this. Currently watching Teresa Palmer in "A Discovery of Witches"...so lovely and talented!

Yea, I agree. I was surprised by that show in that I like it and am watching it regularly. I attribute it to being British. Shot in England and cast with mostly English actors. It's pretty good, which still surprises me it being about witches and vampires.

Ok, that is intriguing ...

Let's see...the little boy...what is he, 3 yrs. old?...asks a grown up man where do we go when we die?...and instead of treating him and his question with respect he answers with another question of where does he think we go? Dude!!...if he knew he wouldn't have asked you, for crissakes! I hate that kind of so-called parenting. I raised a daughter. She's now 50 yrs. old and I always treated her with respect and dignity and when she asked me questions like that I tried to give her an intelligent answer. She remembers that stuff too as she tells me about them a lot when we talk and spend time together now. But hey, that's just me.

Geez. Take it easy bro. Go smoke some weed!

...lol...no thanks. Probably good advice for most people, but I quit smoking dope 34 yrs. ago after smoking it daily for almost 20 yrs. Having learned from that experience is what probably had led me to question things in the way that I do now. It's still a very lame answer to a very important question...imo... ..and answering a question with another question is always lame and irresponsible. If you don't have a good answer than just state it as so without throwing it back to the one who asked the original question. Especially if that someone is a child. Now you go smoke some weed...and enjoy. Plus, when...and if...you finally get the message, than hang up the phone. Cheers!

Looks like an interesting take on some pretty heavy subject matter. Also looks incredibly depressing...

Looks solid. I dig that setting. // Also I dig they used Vimeo, instead of Youtube.
