Land of the Deafs (The)

A Feature film by Nicolas Philibert

Produced by Les Films d'Ici

Release in France : 03/03/1993

    Synopsis

    Anyone who has ever ventured to the "Land of the Deafs" will have been struck by the strangeness of the choreographed signs with which deaf people express themselves.
    Developed ages ago, these signs constitute a veritable language. As precise and subtle as speech, they are as effective as spoken language in making a declaration love or providing a detailed technical description.
    Jean-Claude, Jeanine, Eric, Cyril, Alain, Juliette, Guy, Aurélien and René have one thing in common - they are all profoundly deaf. So they dream, think and communicate in sign language. Which means that they see the world differently. Viewers embark with them on a discovery of the distant land of the deaf, where sight and touch assume enormous importance.
    This film is a narrative documentary, recounting a story based on these characters whose lives intersect. The story is their story, and viewers see the world through their eyes...
