Silent Notes – Kiki Tsakalakis, ΗΠΑ/USA, 2020, 11’

A misunderstood, deaf, white young man longs to join a black Baptist choir that he secretly admires, in hopes of becoming part of the community.

A timid and withdrawn Zacharias seeks to join a black Baptist choir despite his deafness, drawn to a community with which he seems to have little in common. Zacharias perseveres against his insecurities, impairment, and difference in culture, attempting to find peace in achieving something he desperately desires, a place of acceptance and belonging. “Silent Notes” explores the navigation of two worlds through music and culture.
