College debaters now speak at unintelligible speeds
Can 500 words per minute, gasps for air, and unintelligible arguments win another championship for Northwestern University’s debate team? Filmmaker and Northwestern University professor Debra Tolchinsky spends a year following the team as they passionately prepare to defend their title under the tutelage of renowned Coach Scott Deatherage. Infused with touches of whimsy, FAST TALK beautifully captures the intensity, drive and absurdity of the mile-a-minute world of college debate, while reflecting on the larger issue of our own accelerated lives.
The result? A documentary that will make you question the speed of your own life and keep you talking.
