THE CONTOURING OF DEAFHOODS
20:20 Thu 17 Jan 2019
Looking to how D/deaf people negotiate the world around them, moving through society and shaping themselves to pockets of community, this programme takes us from the cities and coasts of England to the refugee camps of the Sahara to the thick greenery of New Zealand. We prise out conversations on how culture, circumstance, race and gender relate to our D/deafnesses, as ambitions, estrangement and reconciliations unfold. 99’
Programmed by LSFF’s Young Deaf programmer Zoë McWhinney and presented in partnership with The British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust (BSLBT) which commissions television programmes made in British Sign Language by Deaf people for Deaf people.

A BSL Q&A with English interpretation and supported by Speech To Text Reporting (STTR), led by LSFF programmer Zoe McWhinney in discussion with filmmakers Ted Evans (To Know Him) and Louise Stern (BOAT) will follow the screening.
