Deaf Child by Alex de Ronde
Deaf Child

Deaf Child

A candid portrait of a close-knit family: a father and his two sons, one of whom was born deaf.

Tobias was a year old when his parents were confronted with the news that he'd been born deaf. Now that he is a young adult, his father Alex de Ronde looks back on the life of his son and the choices he made as a father. Childhood photos, home movies and conversations with Tobias and his brother reveal how, despite early setbacks, Tobias has grown into a charismatic young man with a sense of humour.
