How the deaf experience of music can enrich music for everyone

A fascinating exploration of the diversity of human sensory experience, Labyrinth delves into the often complex relationship between the deaf and music. Interviewing a range of deaf people on their personal experiences, the Greek director Dimitris Papathanasis uncovers a nuanced, heterogenous understanding of music as a combination of visuals, vibrations, rhythm and movement – with as broad a range of feelings and perspectives as you’d expect from any group asked to hold forth on the topic. Closing with a performance of music for the deaf, this short documentary challenges hearing viewers to a new experience of what music can be.

Director: Dimitris Papathanasis
