【SERVICE ENDED】Letter to Vincent

Laetitia carton


Sign language was banned in many countries for 130 years until it was adopted at the Second International Congress on Education of the Deaf in Milan in 1880, and taken up at the 21st International Congress on Education of the Deaf held in Vancouver in 2010. Like the children who are taught how to speak in Nicolas Philibert's 1992 film "In a World Without Sound," Deaf people have been expected to "speak," but isn't this a reflection of the values of the hearing people? "Isn't this a reflection of the values of the deaf? Isn't there a way to respect the culture and way of life of the deaf? This is a documentary full of quiet power, written by a brilliant French writer, Laetitia Carton, as a video letter to her deaf friend, Vincent, who passed away 10 years ago.
