A SONIC PULSE (Dorothy Allen-Pickard & Antoine Marinot, UK) - "Music shouldn't be defined by hearing people because it's about feeling vibrations and frequencies." A Sonic Pulse explores D/deaf people’s experience of electronic music from a visceral, communal and scientific perspective.
MÓÐIR (Patrick Barklamb, UK) - The story of how a young individual, the filmmaker, became deaf in his right ear. This is a portrait and testimony of what his life is now like, reflecting on the experience.
