 Product Description

Sound and Fury 6 Years Later is another engaging look at the Artinian family of Long Island, chronicled in the Academy Award nominated film Sound and Fury that came out in 2000.

Sound and Fury ended with 6-year-old Heather's family deciding not to give her the cochlear implant. With the family painfully divided over this issue, Heather's parents moved their family to a deaf community to raise their kids in the signing deaf world.

In this stand-alone follow-up film, we learn that Heather finally did get the implant at age 9, as did her two younger brothers, her mother, her deaf aunt and her two deaf cousins. Now 12 years old, Heather is the only deaf child in her mainstream school. She takes classes with everyone else, plays basketball and volleyball, stays near the top of her class and is popular amongst her hearing peers.

Heather's speech is understandable and she delights in her speaking ability and communication skills.

We see that Heather is growing and learning through lip reading and speech, but she moves easily between the hearing world she is now a part of, and the signing deaf world of her parents. We learn how her parents changed their minds, moved back to Long Island and rejoined their family. Heather's father, who was so resistant to the implant in Sound and Fury, talks about how, with observation and education, he has learned how useful the implant can be for his children and how glad he is they have it.

This resilient family is a remarkable testament to family devotion, tireless responsibility to children and enduring love. [(2006) DVD: 29 minutes] DVDs not returnable once opened.
