At its core, Moonlight Sonata: Deafness in Three Movements is a story about love, family and finding your voice. Filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky (Beware the Slenderman, One Last Hug) has been surrounded by deafness her entire life: Brodsky’s parents are deaf and her oldest child Jonas lost his hearing at the age of 4. While Jonas can hear now with the help of cochlear implants, this documentary chronicles her son’s journey to learn to play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”; a piece the composer wrote while he was losing his hearing.
