Stills from ‘The Sounding’ starring Catherine Eaton, Teddy Sears, and Harris Yulin
This week as her special guest from the arts Ruth Copland is pleased to be interviewing Harris Yulin, Catherine Eaton, and Teddy Sears from the film The Sounding, which had its world premiere at the Cinequest Film Festival. The Sounding is a deeply affecting film, co-written by Catherine Eaton and Bryan Delaney, that speaks to one of our core human needs – to be seen and accepted as our true selves. It tells the story of Liv, who having remained silent for years starts to speak using only the text of Shakespeare as her language. Fully functioning in every other way and self-supporting, she is nevertheless committed to an institution by a well-meaning psychiatrist when her grandfather dies. The story concerns her battle to be allowed to meet the world in the way she wishes, however unconventional. Ruth Copland talks to Catherine Eaton who wrote, directed and starred in The Sounding, and also to lead actors Teddy Sears and Harris Yulin.
