Silent Music  USA/Antigua/Barbuda / 2012 / 70 mins

Every family has secrets, but very few ever get to the heart of what exactly they are. Silent Music is the story of one daughter’s attempt to do just that. While everything seems perfect, appearances are deceiving in the Gomez family: Kenneth and Teresa’s profound deafness isolates them. There is also a communication breakdown in the family that prevents everyone from having genuine relationships with each other. Kenneth is suspiciously secretive. Teresa is incredibly lonely. Virtually everyone in this family hides from the truth.


It is Melissa, the youngest of three hearing children, who investigates her family, exploring difficult subjects never before discussed. Uncomfortable confrontations leave Melissa desperate to know more. The dark secret she eventually discovers unravels everything for Melissa, causing her to question the reason she began this investigation in the first place. Ultimately, Melissa is forced to answer a difficult question herself. “Are some secrets best left hidden?”
