Beyond Silence

A French-German co-production about a young girl, child of deaf parents, who suddenly discovers a love for music. This causes a major problem with her father, the child of a musical family who basically discarded him because he couldn’t hear.  If nothing else, this movie will make you appreciate America’s relatively enlightened attitudes towards the handicapped. But the movie has a lot to say about the interactions between parents and children. We all wish that our children will have better lives than we did, and will be able to do more than we can. But what happens when they actually do?

This film features Howie Seago whom many of us have seen on stage at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
