Beautiful Film on the Ugliest Side of the Deaf Begging on the New York Subway

10.19.12 Marina Galperina

Here’s a trailer for La Voz de los Silenciados — The Voice of the Voiceless, just about to hit the festival circuit. Next time you see the hearing impaired peddling trinkets on the subway for change, you’ll think of Olga, a teenager from Central America who thought she was coming here to study sign language, instead, she was tricked into doing this for an international crime ring, along with other tricked immigrants, terrified to escape the squat of her captors. Looks compelling and completely day-shattering. Also, Ricky Powell plays Henchman #1. Sold!
