Whose Voice Is It Anyway? Channel 4 Breakthrough Film

THIS FILM’S INTENTIONS
We want to show the power of having a voice when you have no speech: how having a communication aid can empower you, and how you are oppressed by not having access to a form of communication.
We want to:
Tell a funny, dark and playful story on-screen, inspired by real life, and reveal what it means to be denied autonomy and your own voice.
Promote the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and get people talking about the subject of non-speaking people.
Show the difference between the Social and Medical models of disability, which have profound day-to-day effects on our lives.
Make the point that not being able to speak doesn’t mean you have nothing to say
Specialist Information Officer and Cerebral Palsy Programme Lead
