Set in rural England and inspired by real life events. The Silent Child centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.
A 20-minute short film about a four-year-old deaf girl, who's assigned a social worker to help her learn sign language, but her skeptical parents are highly resistant to it. This short was directed by Chris Overton and written by Rachel Senton. It's well made, but it's also quite depressing and frustrating at times too. The film deals with some annoyingly bigoted parents, that you learn to really dislike throughout the short (or at least I did). I also learned to really care for the young deaf girl though. It's well made and insightful too.
