When Cedoux first came to the UK, he spoke no English.
He had to try and navigate his way through London, picking
up occasional words here and there. First Steps (Sorry + Please) immerses the viewer in his experiences. While the bulk of the dialogue isn’t understandable, we can understand only the words presented to us, with the occasional ‘Sorry’ or ‘Please’ – the first words Cedoux learnt in English.
Made by Cedoux Kadima, produced by the British Film Institute in 2013 as part of the Remapping Europe Project, supported by the European Commission.
