Beyond Silence

USA, 1960 (MIFF 1961, Programme 26)

Director: Edmond Levy

This distinguished documentary concerns itself with the pupils of a unique institution: the Gallaudet University College for the Deaf, Washington. Only those inflicted with deafness may enrol for its courses. The study of youth at work and play is observed with insight and the accompanying narration is neither sentimental nor sententious.
