Our bodies deceive us daily and we have no control over it.

Therein lies our honesty, or lack of it. Christian Weber’s short film for Nowness “Candor: The Art of Gesticulation” outlines the foundation for a long-term relationship. A 3:44 minute video rendered in rich black and white using body language as a visual language and a clinical narrator suggests the 3 basic requirements for a successful relationship:

No. 1 – Commitment

“The participants recognize the benefit and value of the relationship and are determined to make it work. The level of commitment should progress with time and the level of responsibility and interaction should increase as the relationship develops”

No. 2 – Authenticity

“Relationships require Honesty and Candor on both sides. It will be noticed if the expressions of care are not sincere and the relationship will go backward.”

No. 3 – Communication

“Both parties should feel free to express themselves as they are and know they will be heard and understood.”
