Summarized by Jessica Brannan

The new Netflix film ‘Audible,’ directed by Deaf actor and activist Nyle DiMarco and film director Matt Ogens, is a documentary short about a group of teens. Focusing on the story of one teen in particular, it follows him as he navigates his last year of high school, and all the ups and downs that go with it.

Many of the people involved, including main character Amaree McKenstry, also happen to be Deaf. Along with simply portraying a coming-of-age story about a young teenager, Ogens explains that this film is also about “representation and acceptance and tolerance.” It’s a film for all, focusing on spreading awareness of the Deaf community, while also showing that we’re all people who go can go through similar problems and milestones in life.
