Success and failure ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
This film centers around two men, Jean-Marc Itard and Baron Joseph Marie De Gerando, who expended great time and energy in futile efforts to transform deaf students into pseudo-hearing students. There were, fortunately, outspoken critics of these efforts ... men such as Ferdinand Berthier and Roch-Ambroise Bebian.

A Dangerous incursion ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Describes attempts to eradicate and eliminate the language and society of the deaf that had been nurtured at the American Asylum in Hartford. Horace Mann and Samuel Gridley Howe, self-proclaimed social reformers, squandered time, effort and money on the surface appearance of oral language rather than on the true bedrock of intellectual development. "Powerful hearing people want to replace our language, to educate us in a foreign tongue, to disperse our gatherings, to ban our marriages."
My new family ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
In this film the story of the childhood and education of Laurent Clerc, a pioneer of deaf education, is described. When he was twelve, after being deprived of the opportunity to attend school, he went with his uncle on a week long journey to the National Institute for Deaf-Mutes in Paris. It was here that Laurent Clerc spent the next twenty years and met a young deaf man, Jean Massieu. "I knew that I would learn this new deaf language and that these people, this society of the deaf, would become my new family
The Incurable deafness ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This final film of the series is reported from the perspective of Harlan Lane concerning his views on the current situation for deaf persons. He believes that the congress held by the Pereire Society in 1880 in Milan was "the single most critical event which released a tidal wave or oralism which resulted in the submersion of sign language and signing communities. He feels the dominance of oralism and the supression of signing have resulted in the limited educational achievement of today's deaf men and women, 80% of whom, in America, are engaged in manual or unskilled labor."
A Tale based on fact ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This film focuses on Abbe de L'Epee, and the beginning of world wide education for deaf people. The chance encounter between Abbe de L'Epee and two deaf sisters launched him on his career with deaf students and inspired the abbe to begin his school. What is remarkable is that this occurred in an age when the majority view was that deaf people had no abstract ideas, no memory and, of course, no language. "Fortunately, Eppe's independence of spirit kept him from adopting the prevailing views uncritically."
Fortune and misfortune ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This film centers on events that lead to the founding of education for deaf students in the United States. Thomas Gallaudet, encouraged by Mason Cogswell to learn the European methods of educating deaf students, enrolls at Saint-Jacques. It is here that Gallaudet convinces Laurent Clerc to accompany him to Hartford to assist in founding a school for the deaf in the United States. "You will be a living proof that what has been believed impossible--the education of those born deaf--is indeed possible."
High theater ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This film tells the story of Abbe Roch-Ambroise Sicard, the teacher of Jean Massieu. As the successor to the Abbe de l'Epee, Sicard, along with Massieu, presented a petition to the French National Assembly and obtained a permanent home for the school--Saint-Jacques. Sicard eagerly continued the tradition of public demonstrations and exhibits started by the Abbe de l'Epee. In 1815 Sicard undertook a demonstration tour to London with Massieu, Clerc, and another students. According to Clerc "thus it was that I first came to meet Rev. Thomas Gallaudet."
