“We don’t see deafness as something to be fixed.”
According to Letterboxd, this isn’t a 2020 release, so whoops. But wow, this was incredible. I’m not really sure what to say, but like: Riz Ahmed, the sound design/mixing, the serene quality that the film gradually develops as we see his journey unfold, and the way the camera captures the stillness and serenity of life without sound. It’s beautiful, and it’s heart-wrenching, and it’s perfect.
