Land of Silence and Darkness is a documentary film released in 1971 and directed by Werner Herzog. The film follows the story of a German deaf-blind woman named Fini Straubinger. Fini travels to numerous locations to visit other people with similar disabilities and to talk about how their disabilities affect their lives. One of these locations includes a group home of deaf-blind people, who have lived through life relying only on smell, touch and taste. The film challenges viewers to think about what life would be like without sight, speech and sound. Another scene shows Fini taking other deaf-blind people on a flight, most of them flying for the first time. Viewers are encouraged to wonder what it would be like to be on a flight without looking out the window or hearing the sounds of take-off and landing. Land of Silence and Darkness teaches viewers to be grateful for the small things they take for granted.
