Screening: Sound and Fury

March 8, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

Join the Doc Studio on Tuesday, March 8th for a screening of Sound and Fury, followed by a discussion with HLS student Heather Artinian, who is featured in the documentary, and the producer, Roger Weisberg. Sound and Fury follows the Artinians, a family with deaf and hearing members, as they confront a controversial medical technology called the cochlear implant. Some family members celebrate the implant as an overdue “cure” for deafness while others fear it will destroy their language and way of life. Heather’s parents, both of whom are deaf, struggle over whether to pursue a cochlear implant for their then five-year-old daughter. The film was nominated for an Academy Award.

The Doc Studio is excited to be partnering with Heather to bring the film and the conversation to the law school. The panel discussion will begin at 5:30 PM.
