What happens when a rock star falls in love with an ordinary girl?



Can Lola feel the music, before it’s too late?


Lola has a secret. It’s not that her mother has kicked her out of home. Or that her new housemates are dead people. It’s not hiding her growing feelings for Kain, the punk rocker who’s recently arrived in town and turned her world upside down. Lola is going deaf, which for a musician, totally sucks.


Lola has one chance to change her destiny, from undertaker to classically trained musician. Can she win a scholarship to London, before her hearing disappears completely?

Author / Filmmaker Pauline Findlay works with deaf teenagers who wear either hearing aids or Cochlear implants. She has taught them storytelling and filmmaking for the past 5 years. She helped created the first Sydney Deaf Film Festival through her work with Hear for You.


Can You Feel It? was inspired by her research with the deaf community (who are now her close friends) and her own experience with tinnitus, that lead her to an audiologist office in 2008. And the rest, as they say, is history! She hopes you enjoy Can You Feel It?
