Lost and Sound

[12a]

United Kingdom 2012, 76 mins
Director: Lindsey Dryden

What if you suddenly lost the ability to hear the music you love? 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 re-discover 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 1 in 7 of us will lose the capacity to hear it. Does the end of hearing have to mean the end of music?
