What happens if a philosophical text is mirrored in the world of sign language? What happens if thoughts and signs are translated into moving pictures? "Reading Through the Body" is a short ethnographic documentary showing how a woman who is deaf tries to comprehend and embody a text by Friedrich Nietzsche in an experimental setting.
"An accomplished sign language interpreter attempting the impossible becomes a mesmerising piece of performance art, in a film which reminds us that words are not necessary for a profound cinematic experience." FilmBath Festival, UK
