Summary
Sound and Fury takes viewers inside the seldom seen world of the deaf to witness a painful family struggle over a controversial medical technology called the cochlear implant. Some family members celebrate the implant as a long overdue cure for deafness while others fear it will destroy their language and way of life. Sound and Fury explores this seemingly irreconcilable conflict as it illuminates the ongoing struggle for identity among deaf people today. The Artinian family is at the epicenter of this conflict and their incredible story illustrates the tension and raw emotion on both sides of this highly charged fence. Two brothers, one deaf and one hearing, anguish over the difficult choices they face about how to raise their deaf children. They reach very different conclusions about the cochlear implant, and their decisions spark passionate responses from their hearing and deaf relatives. Out of the Artinian's extraordinary candor emerges a rare and intimate portrait of the deaf that forces viewers to re-examine their definitions of personal identity, disability, culture and community. In addition to raising questions about deaf culture that few people in the hearing world ever consider, Sound and Fury offers the embattled deaf community an opportunity to gain greater understanding, tolerance, and acceptance of personal choice
