HEAR ME OUT (2013) - A film by Steffie van Rhee and Martijn Wüts
Of course siblings argue about things but this deaf brother and sister can't seem to agree on one life changing decision: taking an cochlear implant or staying deaf.
Siblings Irene and Sjoerd were both born deaf. But 9 years ago, at the age of 21, Irene decided to get an cochlear implant. It had a lot of impact on the whole family, but it was worth it because after the operation she could hear the voices of her mom, dad and brother for the first time. Her brother Sjoerd is still in doubt. Having surgery is a big risk but he really wants to hear what Irene now can hear. Will he follow and also take a CI?
