  • Bright Lights: DER presents- A Life Without Words

    12/05/13
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Quiet yet profoundly provocative, this is a haunting story of two siblings born deaf in rural Nicaragua. Dulce Maria (28) and her brother Francisco (22) have never strayed more than a few miles from the farm where they were born. With no written, spoken, or signed language, the siblings were never exposed to the traditional modes of communication and learning others take for granted. When a Deaf NGO worker arrives to try to teach them their first words, the unsettling drama that unfolds poses difficult questions about the meaning and nature of language, of aid work, and of documentary film.
