Listen to the SilenceMariam Chachia - 80'
To Have a dream is very natural and easy for each one of us, but, to follow it, when no one else believes in it, is the fate of only a few. 9-year-old Luka dreams to step onto the stage and dance because this is the only way for him to take his place in the big world. The only world he knows is the public school for deaf children where he studies and lives. Even though it’s very difficult for him to understand and learn the rhythm of the music, he never gives up. The film ‘Listen to The Silence’ observes Luka’s life in the hidden world of this deaf society. This is a story of a young boy’s dream, to be heard.
