"Which memory will you keep?" A nostalgic woman confronts a stranger in her house, one who ultimately reveals their shared history and the love they have for one another. "Talk to me in silence" is a short narrative film. The project is directed by Julia Ngeow.

Julia has mentioned in her statement that this project was born out of a collection of inspirations and drawn from the overwhelming fear of losing one’s sense of identity through memory loss, and the impact it brings upon a family. It is also an homage to memory building and the bonds formed through human relationships. Bonds that carry us through times of hardship and enable us to keep each other “alive and awake” beyond illness or death. This film examines our responsibility as human beings towards one another, and is a love letter to anyone who has "lost" a loved one to memory loss.
