In The Land Of The Deaf

In The Land Of The Deaf


The films and methods of Nicolas Philibert, maker of Etre Et Avoir, have shown him to be one of contemporary cinema's most acclaimed documentarists. In The Land of the Deaf is an elegantly spare and thoughtful portrait of the rich, diverse, but often isolated culture of the deaf community. The film has tremendous power and value: it educates and transports us to another way of occupying this world, and it does so in a pleasurable, unrushed and intelligent fashion.
