Signing Hands Across the Water

I worked on this (video, event and website) while living in the US in 2012 at Swarthmore College, recording a sign language poetry festival, beforehand and during, filming the performers, rehearsals, the events, and trying to weave all these strands together into one piece. The main Signing Hand Across the Water website holds everything that I managed to record, edit and upload.

A young deaf woman is inspired to write her own sign language poem and performs it with her hearing sister.

The film was made as part of the 14 Week Documentary Film-making Workshop at the Scribe Video Centre in Philadelphia, led by Aleks Martray and Chinonye Chukwu.
