Seeing Voices

Dariusz Kowalski
Seeing Voices accompanies members of the Viennese deaf community in their everyday lives, focusing on the acquisition of, and struggle for recognition and establishment of their native language, which becomes visually tangible in the film as a form of communication functioning via bodies, gazes, and rhythm. With sensitivity and empathy, Dariusz Kowalski stages a film about the connection of identity and language, the right to equal opportunity, and the due appreciation of sign language.
