New York Film Festival's Projections

Synopsis

A crossed telephone line propels heated and intimate conversations in which we encounter scenes of protest at a university for D/deaf students, a Q&A cross-fire interrogation, vocal confrontations, and lip-reading practice.

Our take

Next in our selection of highlights from the Projections section of the New York Film Festival is an incisive essay film about deafness, miscommunication, misunderstandings, and social presumption. Using various archival gems, Jenny Brady reveals the remarkable gap between speech and understanding.
