Deaf Jam

- Documentary - USA - 70 minutes - Unrated - English Subtitles

May 14, 2016 @ 11:30 am

Deaf Jam is a delightful and intimate view into the life of Aneta, a Deaf Israeli teenager now living in Queens, NY, as she participates in a poetry workshop for Deaf youth and boldly enters a poetry slam for hearing poets. The film chronicles her developing friendship and collaboration with a young hearing Palestinian poet. Compelling and endearing, Deaf Jam immerses us in the richness and complexity of Deaf culture and makes us see the non-hearing in a whole new light.

In ASL sign language, with spoken dialogue and subtitles

Discussion after film with athlete Yosef Osheyak and Mary Essex (Vermont Association of the Deaf), with ASL interpreter.
