About the Film
What if you lost the ability to hear music? Could you find it again… and could music find you?
Lost and Sound is a moving creative documentary, made by a partially deaf filmmaker. It weaves its way through a startling world of sound and silence, via the ears and brains of three extraordinary people, as they try to re-discover music: a dancer deaf since birth, a young pianist who lost her hearing as a baby, and a music critic facing sudden partial deafness.
Music is one of the greatest of all human experiences; millions of us fall under its spell every day, and it engages more parts of the brain than any other human activity. But 1 in 7 of us will experience hearing loss. Does the end of hearing have to mean the end of music?
