Roald Dahl's 'The Sound Machine' (Film)

Below is a film adaptation, by Zahid Chohan, of Roald Dahl's short story "The Sound Machine", which The New Yorker published in 1949. Wordless, the film is an absorbing and thought-provoking essay about an obsession with science and sound and where invention can lead us.

Also of interest is this series from The Telegraph, "Roald Dahl's Darkest Hour".
