Deaffest & Vertigo Releasing are proud to present an exclusive interview with ‘Sound of Metal’ cast member Riz Ahmed and Director Darius Marder, interviewed by Deaffest Co-Founders Nikki Stratton & Marilyn Willrich.

Deaffest were privileged to interview Riz and Darius via Zoom where they discussed the ‘Sound of Metal’, which was released at cinemas on 17th May 2021.

So, grab your popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show.

With writer/director Darius Marder, star Riz Ahmed, Deaffest’s Marilyn Willrich and Nikki Stratton, with British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter Kam Deo.

We were delighted to see Paul Raci as Joe in the film. You may recognise him from his performance with Beethoven’s Nightmare at Deaffest 2015!

Deaffest want to say a big thank you to Riz Ahmed and Darius Marder for taking part in the interview. Also, thank you to Vertigo Releasing for collaborating with us and making it happen!
