LOST AND SOUND
Plus Q&A with director Lyndsey Dryden
Sunday 9 September, 2.00
What if you lost the ability to hear music? Could you find it again... and could music find you?
LOST AND SOUND is a moving documentary that follows three music lovers on a journey into sound and silence. Accompanied by music, animation and brain science, a pianist, a dancer and a critic try to rediscover music after deafness, with astonishing results. Music is one of the greatest of all human experiences; millions of us fall under its spell every day, and it engages more parts of the brain than any other human activity, but one in seven of us will lose the capacity to hear it. Does the end of hearing have to mean the end of music?
We're delighted to be joined by director Lyndsey Dryden for a Q&A following the screening. Lindsey is a documentary filmmaker and obsessive music lover from London. She has worked on documentaries for broadcasters like the BBC, Channel 4 and Current TV, written for newspapers and magazines, and screened her films at True/False, East End Film Festival, London International Documentary Festival, the British Film Institute and others. This is her first feature. She is partially deaf.
