Lost and Sound
Dir. Lindsey Dryden, 76 Minutes/UK (2012), Canadian Premiere
About the Film
Lost and Sound is a moving creative documentary, made by a partially deaf filmmaker. It weaves its way through a startling world of sound and silence, via the ears and brains of three extraordinary people as they try to rediscover music: a dancer deaf since birth, a young pianist who lost her hearing as a baby, and a music critic facing sudden partial deafness.
