Overview

Paul and Sally Taylor are a retired who have both been deaf from birth. The Taylors have had long and fulfilling lives raising a family without the benefit of being able to hear (though their children can), but at the age of 65, both Paul and Sally make a surprising decision. A new generation of electronic implants is making it possible to restore the sense of hearing to the deaf, and the Taylors decide to take a chance and give the new technology a try. Suddenly Paul and Sally can hear music, use an ordinary telephone, and enjoy a conversation with their children and grandchildren, but how does this impact their daily lives and change their perspective on the world? Irene Taylor Brodsky, Paul and Sally's daughter, captured their journey into the world of hearing on videotape, and Hear and Now is a documentary which looks at the ups and downs as they Taylors exchange one set of sensory experiences for another. Hear and Now was screened in competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
