Beyond Silence

Beyond Silence

dir. Caroline Link, Germany, 1996, 35mm, color, 109 min.

Since the earliest days in her childhood Lara has had a difficult but important task. Both her parents are deaf-mute and Lara has to translate from sign-language to the spoken word and vice versa when her parents want to communicate with other people. Getting older and more mature she becomes interested in music and starts to play clarinet very successfully. However, her parents are deaf; they cannot share Lara’s musical career. The day comes when Lara has to decide between her parents and her own ambitions.
