Documentary Musical, 2004, 35mm, Betacam SP, colour, stereo, 57'
Emotional and stylistically consistent documentary musical depicting the staging of Bernstein’s West Side Story with deaf youths. The dramatic material of this film is intertwined among life and the emotional scenes of the musical; it creates a distinctive choreography, which is a statement of the deaf people’s craving to love this world and to be open.
Reciting to music, which is the way of singing of the deaf, is the strongest and most unexpected witness of the realities of their world.
