In ‘Omertà’, Melis tries to extract the silence between declarations of the ones that are being investigated in court due to corruption in Spain for the last five years, where the judges as well as the ones investigated remain in silence. Background sounds like a microphone, the noise that people make while whispering, people taking notes, pages being leaf through, are some of the sounds that can be perceived while watching the video.
