Sound Of Metal’s Paul Raci Opens Up About Deaf Representation And The Oppression Of Deaf People

We’re attempting to say precisely what Joe tells him at first: ‘We’re right here to repair [the mind], not [the hearing], and there’s nothing flawed with you.’ When he’s fixing my roof over there, I am going ‘What the f- what are you doing?’ He says ‘Oh I’m attempting to fix-’ There’s nothing to repair right here. So that’s actually the theme. And deaf individuals – you realize, once I was rising up within the ‘50s in Chicago with my mom and dad, they were – my perception was that they were the most oppressed people on the face of the earth.
