Docuweek Question and Answer with Irene Brodsky

Docuweek Question and Answer with Irene Taylor Brodsky, director of Hear and Now.

Q: What inspired you to make Hear and Now?

ITB: After being deaf for 65 years, my parents always told me they "didn't have time to learn to hear." So, it never occurred to me that they would actually try out cochlear implants. When they told me--20 years after the device was first invented--that they wanted to give sound a go, I knew it would be an epic experiment. I made the film to figure out their intentions as much as to document them.
