Atos Medical is pleased to announce a documentary about the transition from life with a voice box to one without. “Can You Hear My Voice?” is told through the personal accounts of members of the Shout at Cancer Choir in London, made up of individuals who have undergone a laryngectomy. Throughout the film, the choir members share their personal experiences of life after surgery and overcoming the obstacles of living as a laryngectomee as they prepare for and perform a special concert.
Directed and Produced by Bill Brummel
Bill Brummel is an award-winning documentary producer, director and writer, who has been recognized with a Peabody Award, multiple national Emmy nominations, as well as International Documentary Award nominations.
“Can You Hear My Voice? is an inspiring testimony about the power of music and the human capacity for resilience even in the face of overwhelming adversity. Through the film, I want to encourage people who are struggling through the dark period of recovery to hold on. It can get better. There is life after laryngectomy.”
– Bill Brummel, Producer and Director
Bill is also a laryngectomee, and “Can You Hear My Voice?” is his first film since having his own voice box removed.
