Door de Ooren van Ellen
(Through Ellens Ears) The Netherlands 2011, Doc., 18 Min., OV/d/f
Director: Saskia Gubbels
Eleven-year-old Ellen doesn’t speak with her voice but with her hands. She uses sign language because she is deaf. Ellen has to decide which secondary school to attend. She doesn’t want to go to the boarding school for the deaf like other deaf children. She would much rather go to an ordinary school or to the school for the hard of hearing, just like her best friend Myrthe, who is hard of hearing. But will she be admitted there?
