In a world that’s not always built for hard-of-hearing people, sometimes we take communication for granted. What’s it like to use one sense to do the work of another? “Can You Read My Lips?” is an immersive short about lip-reading based on the essay “Seeing at the Speed of Sound” by disability advocate Rachel Kolb who narrates and stars in the piece.
