aspiring stoop crone. they/she.
in October of 2019 I learned that at some point in my life I will be completely deaf. I’ve worn hearing aids since that day. when you’re 28 years old, the last thing you expect is for one of your major senses to deteriorate. I felt so much anger towards my body for betraying me, and I carried immense guilt, because I could not be a “normal” person.
watching this, despite Ruben’s very different circumstances, took me back to that October day. I cried the tears that I didn’t let myself cry then.
this film is going to stay with me for a very long time.
