Sound and Fury
Academy Award "RM" -nominated Sound and Fury follows the intimate, heart-rending tale of the Artinians, an extended family with deafness in three generations, as they confront a technological device that threatens deaf culture -- and their bonds with each other. For the Artinians, a ear implant means the choice between life in the mainstream and the longevity of the deaf community, a robust culture in its own right, united by a uniquely visual and artistic language. Five-year-old Heather -- precocious, vivacious, deaf and a candidate for implant surgery -- is caught between her deaf parents and her hearing grandparents, as they argue passionately about her future. The debate is sometimes silent, but by no means quiet. When all is done, Sound and Fury speaks volumes about the choices we make and the battles we fight in order to be heard.-- Highly praised, award-winning (Oscar "RM" Nominated) feature documentary film.-- National PBS airing on January 1, 2002.-- Powerful investigation into the deaf community and the device that threatens to tear it apart.-- A must see for anyone who has had to fight a painful battle in order to be heard.
