I love this documentary. It's made up of three stories, one of a deaf woman and her brother, one of a deaf man and his wife, and the final story is about a deaf boy who's a survivor of a bus accident. There are short clips of each of the stories and the result is a really beautiful, well-made documentary about deaf people and their world. It's so real and emotional that I have to say it's one of my favourite documentaries.

It's an interesting look at a difficult topic. The documentary was very good, but some of the information that was given to the audience was extremely simplistic. This film is not about how to speak a particular language. This film is about the challenges and the joy of learning. That's it.

In the documentary "Birdy: A Journey Through the Music of Birdy" I learned that the film is based on a true story about the life of the great jazz great, Birdy. As I watched the film I found that I could relate to the story of Birdy, not as an individual, but as a member of a family that includes many other artists. It was hard to see Birdy come into his own and become an important part of the history of jazz. I could relate to the story of how Birdy, a young boy in Harlem, grew up in a foster home and how the rest of his life he struggled with his inability to communicate with others, especially his deafness. He eventually turned to his father's influence, which helped him to learn how to play the guitar and to be successful in the music business. The film was interesting to watch because of the music that was being played in the background. I heard the classical music that was being played at the same time I heard the jazz. I also heard the different jazz styles being played. I also heard how Birdy was able to create his own style of music from his friends that he played with. I was impressed by the way that Birdy was able to learn to play the guitar and become successful in the music business, and how his father was able to help him do so. It was very entertaining to watch the film and I found myself wishing that I had been able to learn to play jazz or hear jazz in the theater because I had a chance to listen to the music in this film. Overall, I enjoyed the film and I would recommend it to others because I think that the story of Birdy is interesting and has a lot of lessons to teach us all.

So, I saw this film at a screening in the U.K. I was impressed with the screening and was impressed with the director. This is a film that's been under-appreciated. The last 5 years or so have seen a lot of re-releases of the same old stuff. It's been a long time since we've had something new and different. The film is on-target and well-made. It's important to give credit where it's due and the film has no problem doing so. It's a documentary about the deaf-blind community and their struggle. The director's work and the way it's presented was a pleasure to watch. The actors did a great job and I thought the music was superb. I've seen a lot of different films with the same theme. It's just an amazing story that makes you want to do something about it. So, this film is a great documentary that's worth seeing.
