The Boy Who Made Silence
Intended for mature audiences
Rural boy Nestor Gudfred mysteriously loses his hearing when pulled from a river by a girl of his age. As Nestor adjusts to a silent world, other mysteries arise, including an ability to create silence around him, causing anyone in the area to sink into the pasts and memories of others. Former winner of a Xeric Grant, Hagler imagines the intersecting lives of a small town through a surrealist lens.
