Lost and Sound (2012) Trailer
Trailer for Lost and Sound.
Imagine waking up in the morning to find that the world sounds utterly different and music is suddenly unrecognizable. All the songs you loved and all the songs you've yet to discover are suddenly out of reach. One in seven of us will experience some kind of hearing loss in our lifetime. So what would happen to the music you love, if your hearing was lost? Could you find a way to get music back again... and could music find you? Made by a partially deaf filmmaker after the future of her own hearing was called into doubt, this fascinating documentary follows three extraordinary people as they try to rediscover music after deafness: a dancer deaf since birth, a young pianist who lost her hearing as a baby, and a music critic facing sudden partial hearing loss. Lost and Sound combines intimate filming with original animation, a rich musical soundtrack (often manipulated to reveal what deafness actually sounds like), and new insights from the world's top neuroscientists, to tell the story of the great human love affair with music.
