Irene Taylor Brodsky On The Documentary, "Moonlight Sonata: Deafness In Three Movements"

"Moonlight Sonata: Deafness In Three Movements," directed by Irene Brodsky, can be considered as a spiritual sequel of sorts to Brodsky's 2007 award-winning documentary,"Hear and Now." At its core, "Moonlight Sonata: Deafness In Three Movements" is a story about love, family and finding your voice. Filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky has been surrounded by deafness her entire life: Brodsky’s parents are deaf and her oldest child, Jonas, lost his hearing at the age of 4. While Jonas can hear now with the help of cochlear implants, the documentary chronicles her son’s journey to learn to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata," a piece the composer wrote while he was losing his hearing.
