𝐒𝐎𝐔𝐍𝐃 𝐈𝐌𝐏𝐑𝐈𝐍𝐓 𝟐 – the second medium-length film produced by the VAR Association – it is a production that reflects the quintessence of a project dedicated to hearing-impaired teenagers and preteens (cochlear implants/hearing aids carriers) from Romania. For 10 weeks (January- March 2022) 16 youngers gathered from different regions of the country were challenged through online workshops based on play therapy techniques, percussion, puppet making and visual arts (film, drawing and photography ) to discover and value their inner resources, generating their own visions and creations. During the two months, guided by the project implementation team, they managed to create over 400 video and audio materials which went through a careful selection process in the post-production stage. Therefore, the images and sounds found in the film highlight their identity, resources, quests and wishes. Through this film, the initiators aim to promote diversity and tolerance, thus increasing these youngers’ degree of awareness and acceptance of reality. The audience have the opportunity to discover unique visions and approaches – realities seen, heard and felt by them. An honest dialogue between the creators and the wide audience.
