The Sound Barrier

Filmed over nine months, The Sound Barrier follows a number of people who have made the decision to receive a cochlear implant and captures their individual remarkable journeys from silence to sound.

The ability to hear is something that most people take for granted. While for some deafness is a cherished identity, for others it’s a barrier to overcome.

Available to watch on RTE Player online – www.rte.ie/player/show/10443139/

With access to the Cochlear Implant Unit of Dublin’s Beaumont hospital, this film follows four deaf patients as they receive electronic surgical implants.

refer sign language students to Signature accredited tutors. The freelance
tutor then informs students of upcoming courses, the costs of classes & any
exam fees.
