Voice Journey Documentary
is a 27-minute award-winning documentary by Zhenya Kiperman about two singers with voice-threatening illnesses. As patients, both had to abandon singing to go through surgeries, periods of complete silence and extensive therapy to finding their voices again.
The film was produced and directed by an award-winning filmmaker and Drexel University film professor Zhenya Kiperman. It features the work of a noted otolaryngologist Dr. Robert Sataloff and combines detailed visual accounts of surgical procedures, including a specially created thyroplasty animation, with a moving narrative of patients’ experiences with their illnesses.

Back to the Top
Translated from French into English, a short introduction gives a history of laryngology and the anatomy and function of the phonatory structures. The non-scientific viewer will enjoy the music and the sequences of a variety of larynges involved in many normal and abnormal speaking and singing samples. The scientific observer will additionally enjoy the translations from French medical terminology into English.
Color and Sound (1983), approximately 30 minutes
THE LARYNX AND VOICE: THE FUNCTION OF THE NORMAL LARYNX – Hans von Leden, M.D. and G. Paul Moore, M.D.
Classic, historical video demonstrating the anatomy and physiology of the voice and the mechanics of the vocal folds.
Color and Sound (1957), approximately 21 minutes
A staged, vintage visit to the laryngologist, complete with high-speed laryngeal videos of the pathologic larynx.
Color and Sound (1957), approximately 24 minutes
Historical high-speed laryngeal videos of the vocal folds during singing, laughing, coughing, talking, and vocal fry.
MICROSURGERY OF THE LARYNX – Minoru Hirano, M.D. This tape shows Dr. Hirano’s microlaryngeal surgical techniques for several procedures: removal of a nodule, cyst, and a polyp; laser excision of granuloma, a ventricular cyst, and epithelial dysplasia; laser cordectomy of glottic carcinoma; and laser correction of a subglottal stenosis using an endolaryngeal approach.
Color and Sound (1982), approximately 16 minutes
PHONOSURGERY LECTURE NUMBER 1: THYROPLASTY I and III (and ARYTENOID ADDUCTION) – Nobuhiko Isshiki, M.D.
The four types of thyroplasty procedures are classified and the advantages of laryngeal framework surgery are given. An in-depth discussion of the thyroplasty I (vocal fold medialization) procedure used to correct imperfect glottic closure is given. A description is given of a combined operation of thyroplasty type I and thyroplasty type III used to correct vocal fold atrophy and sulcus. Videotaped highlights of the thyroplasty procedure are presented along with pre- and postoperative stroboscopic images of the patients. The arytenoid adduction procedure is discussed as is the combining of arytenoid adduction with thyroplasty type I to correct a large glottal chink. The vidoetape concludes with a short question-and-answer session.
Color and Sound (1993), aprroximately 93 minutes
The effectiveness of the Silastic implants used in thyroplasty procedures is discussed. The focus is on pitch problems and how dysphonia develops. Highlights include the following surgical procedures: lowering vocal pitch, cricothyroid approximation, combined thyroplasty to correct an unusual functional-related dysphonia, thyroplasty type I for correction of spastic dysphonia, laryngeal web removal and mucosal transplantation. Concludes with a discussion of the acoustical analysis of the voice and applications for determining the ease of phonation, along with the importance of animal experimentation.
Color and Sound (1993), approximately 91 minutes
THE VOICE OF THE IMPERSONATOR – Robert J. Feder, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Impersonators Mel Blanc and Rich Little and ventriloquist Willie Tyler demonstrate their various characterizations and their normal voices. The patterns of vocal fold motion and the associated dramatic changes that occur in the supraglottic vocal tract are observed using flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy.
THE VALUE OF LARYNGOSTROBOSCOPY IN THE MANAGEMENT OF VOICE DISORDERS – Murray D. Morrison, M.D.
Gives examples of male and female laryngeal images under normal and stroboscopic light. Pathologies illustrated include nodules, edema, fibrosis, polypoid thickening, contact granuloma, diplophonia, vocal fold scarring secondary to vocal fold “stripping,” vocal fold carcinoma, and glottic web.
Color and Sound (1983), approximately 13 minutes
Vocal fold anatomy is illustrated using histological slides and schematic drawings. The mode of vibration is demonstrated using simplified schematic drawings. High-speed photography illustrates the vocal fold vibration of several male and female subjects with normal and abnormal larynges, then the vibration is simulated in schematic drawings.
VOCAL WAVES – Jean Abitbol, M.D.
VOICE THERAPY FOR CONTACT GRANULOMA – Carole Bloch, M.A.
A group of six professional men who are currently undergoing treatment for contact granuloma discuss their experiences with surgical, medical, and therapeutic treatment regimens. This video illustrates the value of voice therapy as a primary mode of treatment for this disorder
