Land of Silence and Darkness Details


This moving documentary by director Werner Herzog (Werner Herzog and Werner Herzog) enters into the world of Fini Strabinger of Bavaria, who is both deaf and blind. Fini has made a career of helping others who are similarly afflicted, teaching them sign language and taking them on field trips to gardens and touching zoos. Told in an unaffected, homey style, this film uses a minimum of narration as it movingly explores the lives of these people. One of the film's highlights is footage showing Fini's reactions to her first airplane flight. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
