Quiet Please… is a documentary that explores the emotional and psychological ramifications of a neurologically based disorder called misophonia. This documentary features Converse College, where the director, Jeffrey Gould, filmed the art segment with student Jessica Gilbert. This documentary raises awareness and captures an often invisible condition, misophonia, through the captivating experience of those who live with it.
Gould writes, “The faculty and staff at Converse have been nothing but supportive and accommodating during every step of the project/process; I think it’s a true testament to their dedication to their students, and you can certainly feel the pulse when you’re on campus.” Professor of Studio Art, Andrew Blanchard, observes, “This is a real unique type of student outcome and achievement, one I haven’t been a part of yet in my 13 years on campus, nor, have seen in/around our community.” And Jessica Gilbert, the student featured in the documentary, says “I am grateful to everyone who is pulling this event together; I am very appreciative of everyone’s support.”
Already accepted for several film festivals, we hope the campus and the Spartanburg community will join us for this rich documentary experience as we present Quiet Please … in its southeastern premiere screening.
