The profound impact of technology on the lives and identities of young deaf adults is explored in The Listening Project. Fourteen deaf people tell stories beginning with a childhood wide-eyed about sound, into the growing pains of adolescence and, eventually, their professional lives. Sometimes humorous, always tender, The Listening Project is a timely coming of age story, one we haven’t heard before.
The Listening Project is directed by Academy Award-nominated, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky and Jane Madell, Clinical Audiologist and Professor.
