Fifteen and Learning to Speak

Channel 4: Unreported World


Patrick Otema, 15 was born profoundly deaf.  This moving film, presented by Kiki King and directed by Daniel Bogado, takes us to the remote area of Uganda where Patrick lives.  There are no schools for deaf children, and he has never had a conversation; as in other parts of the developing world, being deaf means being unable to communicate at all. But Raymond Okello, an inspirational teacher, seeks out those who have never had a voice, and aims to change their lives.
