Can You Hear My Voice?

Can You Hear My Voice?

Can You Hear My Voice? chronicles the Shout at Cancer choir, whose members have all had their voice boxes removed, as they prepare for their most ambitious concert – a sold-out performance at London’s historic Tabernacle theater. Along the way, choir members’ cancer stories unfold, revealing their struggles with self-identity, self-doubt and loss. 

The film is a triumphant testimony illuminating a universal theme – the human capacity for resilience in the face of overwhelming adversity. Produced and directed by award-winning Bill Brummel, his first film since having his own voice box removed in 2016.

“Peabody Award and International Documentary Award-winning filmmaker and multi-Emmy Award nominee, Brummel has, with Can You Hear My Voice?, created an absolutely sublime moviegoing experience that will make you laugh, cry, shout, be grateful, and believe.” Richard Propes, The Independent Critic
