Sound and Fury : Six Years Later
The life of the Artinian family of Long Island was chronicled in the Academy Award nominated film Sound and Fury that came out in 2000. Sound and Fury: Six Years Later is another engaging look at this extraordinary family in the years since their first movie captured audiences around the world. Sound and Fury ended with 6-year-old Heather’s parents deciding not to implant her. In this stand-alone follow up film, we learn that Heather’s parents changed their minds and she finally did get the implant at 9 years old, as did Heather’s 2 younger brothers, her mother, her deaf aunt and her 2 deaf cousins. The film follows Heather in her life today interacting fluidly between the hearing world of her school and the signing deaf world of her parents.
