Words and the instrumental version of “Le sud” by Nino Ferrer, voice of Daniel Michel. A profoundly deaf young man forces himself to pronounce with difficulty the words of a popular French hit. He hears neither his voice nor the accompanying instrumental music. In three minutes the combat that all disabilities represent is magisterially delivered. The movement of his lips might give us the impression that he has appropriated the sonorous and environmental context in which he is situated. An intense emotion is produced in the face of the evidence of the disability and the struggle with a surprising ordeal of language.
