February’s instalment of the Celluloid Psychology series features an Oscar-winning exploration of communication and attraction. A speech therapist joins a school for the deaf and soon falls in love with a deaf woman who refuses for her voice to be heard.
Dr Allegra Cattani, at the School of Psychology, will introduce the film and discuss the role of hearing in psycholinguistics, and language culture in deaf people.
