Blindfolded adults sit in an auditorium while a film is shown. Behind them sits a row of children who quietly describe what they see. Or at least, they try, because there aren’t always words to describe what’s on the screen. The potential and limitations of language as a means of communication take on a new dimension, accompanied by both the soundtrack and the whispering hubbub.
