Director Statement

The Resilient Larsons is a movie that talks about how a courageous special needs couple achieve success despite all the challenges they face in a world of sounds. It is an unimaginable experience to get to know that you're gaining something while losing something. This is the project which makes me feel how incredibly talented deaf actors or any special needs actors are. They are winning in this world despite all the challenges. I'm glad I made this movie.


 “The Resilient Larsons” is an open caption file , meaning subtitles will stay on all the time for sign language because it features deaf actors as lead actors.
