The race for last year’s Academy Awards for Best Documentary was a close race, but one stood out as perhaps the most controversial. Sound and Fury explores the new technologies in fighting deafness, and the new concerns that come with them. New Video has acquired the film and is preparing it for a January release.
If you could make your deaf child hear, would you? The choice is not so simple. “Sound and Fury,” an Oscar nominated, award winning film, explores one family’s ongoing struggle for identity in the seldom seen or heard world of the deaf. As new technology is introduced that may enable the deaf to hear, the family of both hearing and hearing impaired members are torn apart in this important new documentary film that will surely touch the hearts and lives of a wide audience.
Presented in its original fullscreen aspect ratio, “Sound and Fury” will be available on January 2nd for a suggested retail price of $24.95.
