Quiet Please

Quiet Please

Available on Prime Video
Imagine normal, everyday sounds consuming, and dictating your life... Some of us are annoyed by certain sounds, but when you suffer from misophonia, a neurological disorder, specific sounds trigger adverse physiological and emotional reactions: adrenaline rush, rapid heart rate and sometimes rage. Quiet Please... explores the possible causes and the pioneering efforts to research it, but its primary focus is on the emotional toll it has on sufferers and those closest to them. We interviewed over 40 people in the United States, Germany and The United Kingdom, including: misophonia sufferers, their families, and a diverse group of researchers and clinicians. Hundreds of letters have come in from 22 countries, thanking the film's producers for giving sufferers a voice, but equally as important, many people realized that they have the condition as well and were going through their lives thinking there were crazy and alone; that realization and validation is life-changing. Misophonia, and the film have been well-documented in the press and media around the world, and it has garnered 16 film festival awards and selections so far.
