LA DÉCISION_Les Films de l’œil sauvage_Rose-Marie Loisy.jpg


Angélique is 27 years old and is gradually becoming profoundly deaf. This situation prevented her from integrating into professional life. So she opted for cochlear implantation, a device connected to the auditory nerve by electrodes.

I'm her elder sister and we have the same malformation. But I reject her decision to implant a foreign body to stimulate her nervous system. Our differing points of view call into question our relationship with deafness and normality, as established by society and the medical profession.

I accompany Angélique on her quest to become "hearing", right through to the aftermath of her operation and the rehabilitation of her hearing system.
