In The Land Of The Deaf

  • France
Audio Tracks 

What is the world like for the thousands of people who live in silence? Jean-Claude, Abou, Claire, Sophie and all the rest, who have been totally deaf since birth or since the early months of their lives, dream, think and communicate through signs. With them we set off to discover that distant land where seeing and touching are of such crucial importance. This film tells their story and gives us a glimpse of the world through their eyes.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
