Summary Twins follows two sets of one-year-old twins for three years. Each set has one profoundly deaf twin who has been given a cochlear implant, and a hearing twin with whom their language development is compared. This insightful documentary provides a dramatic demonstration of the power of the cochlear implant, which has been the cause of much controversy and misunderstanding with the signing deaf community. It also gives a vivid picture of how normal language develops by showing the progress of the hearing child. By following the lives of the twins and their families, one of which is featured in Filmakers Library's Academy Award nominated film Sound and Fury, we witness the astonishing growth in the deaf children's speech and hearing as well as their integration and assimilation into mainstream life. The film includes commentary by renowned implant surgeon Dr. Simon Parisier and audiologist Dr. Pat Chute. (A closed captioned version is available on VHS only. Please specify when ordering)
