Celebrate New Zealand Sign Language Week with this special documentary screening.

Deaf Jam is the story of Deaf teen New Yorker Aneta Brodski's bold journey into the spoken word slam scene. In a wondrous twist, Aneta, an Israeli immigrant, meets Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet. The two women embark on a collaboration/performance duet creating a new form of slam poetry that speaks to both the hearing and the Deaf.

If you like poetry, enjoy watching talented teenagers create amazing art, are interested in Deaf culture … then this extraordinary film is for you.

"Poetry, friendship and respect transcend politics; delightful and endearing, utilizing upbeat music and clever graphics, Deaf Jam immerses us in the richness and complexity of deaf culture and gives us a unique perspective into a world so vibrant, so diverse, it may forever change the hearing see the non-hearing."

Barbara Pokras, A.C.E., Woodstock Film Festival.

All welcome.

This film is suitable for speakers of American Sign Language and/or English. Book your spot at Richmond Library, 03 543 8500, or speak to a library staff member.
