“Can You Hear My Voice?” chronicles the one-of-a-kind Shout at Cancer UK choir, whose members have all had their voice boxes removed, as they prepare for their most ambitious concert - a sold-out performance at London’s historic Tabernacle theater. The film includes songs popularized by Nina Simone, Tears for Fears, and Louis Armstrong. Along the way, choir members’ cancer stories unfold, revealing their struggles with self-identity, self-doubt and loss. Far from maudlin, “Can You Hear My Voice?” bears witness to the power of music, and is a triumphant testimony illuminating a universal theme - the human capacity for resilience in the face of overwhelming adversity.
The film is produced and directed by award-winning Los Angeles documentary filmmaker Bill Brummel - his first film since having his own voice box removed in 2016.
