From Silence to Sound
 

A DEAF MAN TAKES A CHANCE ON A RISKY SURGERY IN HOPES OF HEARING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS LIFE

Director Chase Matthews offers this moving documentary about Justin Garrett, a completely deaf young man who agreed to undergo radical cochlear implant surgery that could possibly make him hear for the first time. Matthews follows Justin as he prepares for, submits to and recovers from the high-stakes surgery. Success will reverse Justin's condition, but failure will irrevocably destine him to a lifetime of total silence.

DVD bonus features include the behind-the-scenes interviews with director Chase Matthews, producer Jenine Mayring, and executive producer Jack Polachek, as well as a Q&A session after the Los Angeles premiere with Justin Garrett. English subtitles (including the DVD bonus features).



Reviews:
"From Silence to Sound is an intimate and powerful portrait of courage and the dream to hear."

-Alan Berliner, Emmy® Award winner & 2007 Sundance Film Festival Juror

"It is spellbinding to witness Justin's transformation from frustration and anger to gratefulness and wonder. It is the ultimate story of beating the odds and you can't help but cheer at his victory."
