Hear and Now

Irene Taylor Brodsky, 85 min, USA.

After 65 years of silence, love becomes amplified.

Filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky tells the story of her deaf parents, Paul and Sally Taylor, and their decision at the age of 65 to undergo risky coacher implant surgery, a procedure that could give them the ability to hear. An intimate memoir, the film follows their complicated journey from a comfortable world of silence to a new and profoundly challenging world of sound.
