One out of seven people will experience hearing loss in their lifetime. For music critic Nick Coleman, dancer Emily Thornton, and pianist Holly Loach, music and hearing were central to their lives and spirits pre-hearing loss. LOST & SOUND follows these artists after they lost their hearing and as they journeyed deep into sound and silence to re-discover music. Made by a partially deaf filmmaker after the future of her own hearing was called into doubt, the film weaves its way through a startling world of altered sound. It combines intimate filming with original animation, a rich musical soundtrack (often manipulated to reveal what deafness actually sounds like), and new insights from the world’s top neuroscientists, to tell the story of the great human love affair with music. Featuring: New York Times bestseller Dr. David Eagleman, composer Professor Nigel Osborne, Dr. Katie Overy, Prof. David Huron, Dr. Robert Zatorre and science writer Philip Ball. Open Caption.
