This thought-provoking video shows why we can question a man’s judgment, but never his motives.

“One man sees another man running towards him.”

This Kafkaesque premise seems simple, but as filmmaker Dominic Allen reveals, it is deceptively complex.

The story begins as Claude sits on the fence, under the beating sun. He sees a man running towards him and begins to contemplate into the possibilities. In adapting Kafka’s tale, Allen hoped reinforce the author’s point that “it’s impossible to ever truly know another’s motivations.”

A man’s judgment can be wrong. But his motive is based on his perception of the situation. You can’t change someone’s reality, or the motive he’s chosen based on that reality — it’s always right to him. But you can question the judgment process he used to make a motive based off of his perception.

“Two Men” is set in the river town of Fitzroy Crossing, deep in the Northern Western Australian desert, and features a cast of indigenous Australian non-actors.
