In 2015, director Laetitia Carton made this film for her friend Vincent, who had died ten years earlier. Vincent was deaf. He introduced her to sign language. Today she is giving him news of her country, this unknown and fascinating world, the world of a people fighting to defend its culture and identity.

It was with this film project that Laetitia Carton entered the Lussas documentary school in 2005. The film was released in film theatres ten years later. What began as immense anger at the loss of a friend, Vincent, has since become a letter addressed to him. It's a chilling account of what it's like to be deaf in France today, a foreigner often in his/her/their own country because they don't speak the dominant language. But it is also a joyous plea against a standardized society. Written in the first person and built up over time with a solid and generous community of friends, artists and researchers, the feature-length documentary celebrates the otherness we encounter and invites us to step aside. Because the musicality of the world of signs makes noise and sweeps away our deafness.

The film will be interpreted in French Sign Language of Belgium (LSFB), followed by "L'accessibilité est l'affaire de tous" (Accessibility is everyone’s business): a meeting with members of the deaf community, accessible in spoken French.
