For a Deaf Son


“For a Deaf Son,” produced by Rob Tranchin – the father of a deaf son – offers an intimate look at the decisions that must be made by parents when a deaf child is born into a hearing family. The documentary features a touching selection of home videos taped by the Tranchins before and after they learned that their son, Thomas, was deaf, as well as interviews with deafness experts.
