SEEING VOICES

SEEING VOICES

Seeing Voices shows a world that’s often invisible to those who can hear – if only because there’s more sign than spoken language in this film. Intense images, informative and entertaining, make us sensible of different situations in life for which the deaf must develop special communication strategies. How do you communicate at a dancing class? What role does the hearing child of a deaf couple play? And what does the life of a deaf politician look like? (Lars Meyer, DOK Leipzig)
