  • Vincent was deaf. He had introduced me to his language, his culture, his world. Going to meet his friends, I will follow the thread of his life until his tragic death. An imposed oral education, the family refusal of its difference, the late discovery of the sign language and the deaf world ... Through Vincent's life, a singular story, but which is also that of thousands of other deaf people, I go back to the roots of the discomfort of the deaf: "The prohibition" of sign language for more than a century, the difficulty to grow in this language, even today, and the resulting suffering, made isolation, denial and incomprehension. In parallel, I tell him my journey to the land of the deaf since his death. Throughout the film is all the richness of this unknown and fascinating world that I want to share with the viewer, that of a people that the sign language shapes, and that acts, struggles to defend its language and its culture, its difference.
