This personal film essay starts out following three sound artists (including Chris Watson, who is known for his recordings of nature), but takes a surprising turn when the director meets the deaf writer Louise Stern. The poetic film diary shows the growing role of audio media in the world of images. 


Toby Clarkson (1979) lives in London, where he founded the sound art collective Oscillatorial Binn. He works with audio, film and visual art, and has worked as a film editor. Little Tsunamis is his directorial debut.
