In Jonc’s Silence (2013) explores the everyday lives of different people of all ages with intellectual disabilities. They allow us to see their daily lives. Along with these testimonies, we have also contacted several specialists who speak from a professional viewpoint on intellectual disabilities. Finally, the documentary is complete with various artistic scenes. This structure aims to combine different languages and forms of discourse: theoretical, experiential and artistic, with the desire to reflect on the difference and with the conviction that art can be a way to stop the difference from being different.
