CCTV - A moving TV ad about the silent world of a Chinese boy

This new TV ad is made for China’s national broadcaster CCTV. It’s a follow-up to its award-winning series of public service advertisements made by Saatchi & Saatchi.

‘A Silent World’ tells of the complex emotions that confront the parents of a hearing-impaired boy, from initial shock and anxiety upon diagnosis at the doctor’s office, to sadness as they begin to accept their son’s disability.

According to Fan Ng, Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi Shanghai, renowned Taiwanese director Yang Ya-che was invited to direct the advertisement: “We gave thoughtful consideration to casting to ensure that viewers were provided an authentic and realistic view of the joys and challenges experienced by families of hearing-impaired children.”
