New Perspectives Film Series—Sound and Fury
Saturday, Dec. 14, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Sound and Fury documents one family’s struggle over whether or not to provide two deaf children with cochlear implants, devices that can stimulate hearing. Viewers are introduced to one of the most controversial issues affecting the deaf community. Cochlear implants may provide easier access to the hearing world, but what do the devices mean for a person’s sense of identity with deaf culture? Sound and Fury was a 2001 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature. Suggested donation of $5. Refreshments served. The New Perspectives Documentary series is programmed and moderated by filmmaker, Megan Smith-Harris. A Q&A will follow the film. Registration highly recommended.
