Love Is Never SilentDVD - 2008
Janice and Abel live in their own world. A world of signs. Signs they are ashamed to show. They are quite young when they leave deaf school to marry, and they must fight for their lives in the hearing world. The depression is hard, but being unable to hear often means tragedy for their family. Their daughter Margaret can hear, and becomes the link for Janice and Abel to the world of hearers, a world they don't understand and don't trust. Margaret struggles with her own need for independence and the obligation she feels toward her parents. The treatment of deaf people in 1930's society, and the toll that the resultant misunderstandings take on a family, is well depicted in this film.
