Norma and Cecilio

6 minutes

A deaf couple’s candid conversation shows what love looks like

Norma and Cecilio have much in common. They’re Filipino. They’re charming and expressive. They use sign language to communicate due to deafness. Above all, are still in love with one another after 47 years of marriage. In this intimate portrait of love and dedication, Norma and Cecilio reflect on some the reasons their marriage has been a continued success (not the least of which is a vibrant sex life), and some of unique challenges they’ve faced as a deaf couple.
