Summary
Created and produced by people with hearing loss, We Hear You tells the story of 4 women battling the stigmas and challenges of hearing loss, the invisible disability that impacts 466 million people worldwide. When you have hearing loss, conversation is like a game of Wheel of Fortune. Some of the letters are blank. Others are filled in. We take these incomplete sounds and put them into words or phrases that make sense in the context of the conversation. It doesn’t always work, leaving people with hearing loss isolated and alone. The pandemic makes this worse, as masks take away our superpower — lipreading. We struggle to fit into the hearing world, yet there is a silver lining — meeting one another.
