Brooklyn Girl Productions’ award-winning documentary film From Sound to Silence winner of the Best Inspirational Documentary prize at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival is now available on the on-demand platform BigStar. The film documents the life-changing moment of Justin Garrett a man who had been profoundly deaf since birth making history as the first recipient of a bilateral or double cochlear implant in Oklahoma. Prior to the surgery Garrett had less than two percent hearing in both ears. Today he has nearly ninety-eight percent hearing thanks to the miracles of modern medical technology delivered via his Nucleus cochlear implants made by Cochlear.
