The World in Their Hands - How Deaf-blinds Feel Their Lives

Welt der Nähe - Wie Taubblinde ihr Leben fühlen

I am a German measles child, Anita says. It was all but certain that I would be born disabled. My mother decided to have me nevertheless, and I will be eternally grateful to her. Because I am so happy to be alive. Anita is deaf-blind. She hears and sees practically nothing. The world of the deaf-blind ends with the reach of their hands Being unable, or barely able, to see and hear, deaf-blind people are unable to register anything in the distance. They live in a world of nearness. Director Jonny Roth immersed himself in this subject for two years. If you are unable to hear and see, what's left? This question wouldn't let go of the young director. He had to find out and present this strange, intimate world to the rest of us so that we could feel it ourselves.
