Sound of My Voice Semantic Map
Sound of My Voice investigates Maggie (Brit Marling), a cult leader from 2054 that mystically returns to 2011, and the gathering of her followers in a sterile basement in California. The film revolves around Peter (Christopher Denham) and his girlfriend Lorna (Nicole Vicius) trying to expose Maggie’s blasphemous behavior and the struggles they face. Maggie’s powers of manipulation and the existential questions she presents are one of the highlights of the film. Maggie engages her underlings by morphing into what she thinks they need. Some of her cryptic slogans from the film are indicated in script in each of these semantic maps. The linked bubbles are thoughts, outrages, or plot lines that only begin to suggest the mysteries of Sound of My Voice.
