Description
MR. EDISON'S EAR is an experimental video documentary that probes the relationship between sound and technological reproduction and historicizes these through the Thomas Edison case. The project treats Edison’s personal and corporeal understanding of deafness as crucial to his invention of the phonograph. Historically, the video explores how the phonograph functions as a metaphor for the pain of entry into modernity. - Official Selection, Hot Docs 2008 Canadian International Documentary Festival
