ZURICH (AP) – An experimental film school has produced a film about a young boy who must learn how to live with a deaf father who has no hearing aids.
The film, called “A Day in the Life of a Child with a Hearing Impaired Father,” was produced by ZURich Film School, a new independent school founded in 2013 that is dedicated to providing high-quality independent filmmaking and educational opportunities for students.
It is being produced by a group of students who are studying film, audio-visual and visual effects at the school, and will be released in English by the end of the year.
The video, which was shot on location in Zürich, Switzerland, is a short film with a message for the deaf community.
The children of deaf parents often struggle to communicate with their parents, said ZURI film school director Joerg Eppstein, who has studied the plight of the deaf for nearly 20 years.
He has a grandson with severe hearing loss.
“This film gives the deaf children a chance to talk about their experiences with deaf parents, the deaf world, and the deaf experience in general,” Eppsteins’ son, Oliver, said in a statement.
“The deaf world is filled with so many stories and experiences, and a story that is different from all others.
We hope the film will help them understand their situation and make a positive change in their life.”
Eppstein says he hopes the film helps the deaf find the courage to take part in their own lives, and to develop the same passion for film and art that they have for their deaf community and the people around them.
The movie was shot in Zürich, Switzerland and features a deaf actor portraying the father.
The deaf actor is the son of the director, a deaf woman who was born deaf and is deaf herself, and Oliver, who is deaf.
In the film, the mother and son are in a restaurant in a small village where the children of a deaf man and a deaf girl are eating dinner.
After the father’s hearing aids fail, Oliver becomes increasingly frustrated, which eventually leads to his mother taking him to the doctor to ask if he can be deafened.
The father, who speaks no English, listens intently and tells Oliver to shut up and listen to her.
He says he will listen, but will be deaf to his son.
The father does not want Oliver to hear him.
Oliver is deaf and the father is deaf, but they both have a lot in common, said Oliver.
He listens to her in the restaurant because it is quiet.
Oliver says he does not like silence and the only sound he can hear is the sound of his mother speaking.
“When he says it is very loud, I think it is because he is deaf,” Oliver said.
“He cannot hear me.
I am listening because I know it is important for him.”
The children who live with deaf people often struggle with communicating, said Eppsting.
In his research, Eppsted found that the deaf parents are often not allowed to take their deaf children to places where they are able to hear the language they use.
The deaf children often have to learn to use the phone, which is often not accessible to them.
Oliver said he used to play the phone with his mother and sometimes her father, but now the children often call him by his first name.
“I’m always trying to speak English and I am not able to do that now,” Oliver added.
Eppstings son Oliver said Oliver had a chance in life to become deaf, because he was able to be deaf, and because of his father, whose hearing aids failed.
“He was a very lucky man,” Oliver told the Associated Press.
“There were some times he had to learn that he had a deaf parent, so it gave him a chance.
He’s a very happy, proud, happy kid.”
Oliver and Oliver’s mother, who was deaf herself when they met, will attend the film’s premiere at the Züich Film Festival on Oct. 3.
The festival, which brings together filmmakers, performers, actors, musicians and others, has been supported by the Swiss Film Foundation.
