Moonlight Sonata

Institute History


Moonlight Sonata is a deeply personal memoir about a deaf boy growing up, his deaf grandparents growing old, and Beethoven the year he was blindsided by deafness and wrote his anguished sonata. Their lives weave a story about loss and, more importantly, what we discover when we push beyond it.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
