SOUND IMPRINT

The medium length film “Sound Imprint” is an invitation to discovery, empathy and knowledge – a production that reflects the quintessence of a project dedicated to adolescents and pre-adolescents with hearing loss (wearers of cochlear implants / hearing aids) from Romania.

The construction of the project has a strong character of uniqueness and originality both nationally and internationally. During 15 weeks (February-May 2021), 29 youth  from different regions of the country were challenged, through online workshops based on visual arts (drawing, film, photography), play therapy techniques and drama therapy , to discover and capitalize on their inner resources, generating their own visions and creations.

In a sensitive and multidimensional approach, thought as a succession of video poems, the film captures the portraits and presents the voices of the participants – the protagonists and creators of the film. Through the images they captured, through the emotions and experiences they shared, they managed to give life to authentic, unique, powerful and sensitive stories alike.
