WHAT'S HAPPENING

10th Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival and the 2nd International Conference

Over the past ten years, we have continuously assembled Deaf Films all over the world. We attempt to present sign language and Deaf culture through films that tell stories of the Deaf and created by Deaf people. We do not see Deaf as disabled, but affirm that Deaf people is a community with their own language, culture and history.

A decade has passed. It is time for us to review and further explore the meanings and issues of Deaf films. The 2nd International Conference on Deaf Cinema will be held concurrently with the Film Festival. Local and overseas Deaf Film Festival organizers, film workers, Deaf groups and activists will be invited to discuss and share together. 

10th Hong Kong International Deaf Film Festival and the 2nd International Conference on Deaf Cinema will be held online. Opening Ceremony & Programme 1: Hong Kong Deaf Film and all conference sessions are free of charge. For programme 2 -7, tickets are available at PUTYOURSELF.in.


Programme 2: The Art of Sign Language (Duration: 90 minutes)

Deaf Jam
Director: Judy Lieff
USA | 2012 | 70’ | In English with American Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

The film centers on the experience of Aneta Brodski, a deaf teenager living in Queens, New York, who becomes immersed in the dynamic and three-dimensional form of American Sign Language poetry. When Aneta, the Israel-born ASL poet, eventually meets Tahani, a Palestinian, oral poet, the two begin to collaborate, creating a new form of poetry that gains recognition in Deaf and hearing communities alike.

Dear Hearing World
Director: Adam Docker
UK | 2019 | 4’ | IN English with British Sign Language, in Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

Dear Hearing World is a short film directed by Adam Docker, based on Raymond Antrobus’ poem by the same name. The film blends deaf actress Vilma Jackson’s powerful and thought-provoking performance in British Sign Language with music and striking urban London scenes. This important work calls out ‘audio supremacy’ and asks the world to acknowledge the deaf protagonist’s defiant indignation at their treatment by the hearing world.

Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again
Director: iSigner Sign Language Culture Center
China | 2019 | 3’ | In Mandarin with Chinese Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

Deaf actor presents the poem “Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again” in Chinese Sign Language. “Saying Good-bye to Cambridge Again” is a well-known poem in modern China written by Xu Zhimo. In the fall of 1928, the author revisited Cambridge, England for the last time, and returned to China by boat. When passing through the South China Sea, he integrated the scenery and attachment of Cambridge into his poem, expressing his sorrow of saying goodbye to Cambridge.

Charm of a Maiden Singer — Memories of the Past at Red Cliff
Director: iSigner Sign Language Culture Center
China | 2019 | 2’ | In Mandarin with Chinese Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

Deaf actor re-interprets the classic poetry of the Song dynasty “Charm of a Maiden Singer- Memories of the Past at Red Cliff” by Su Shi in Chinese Sign Language. Su Shi was a writer in the Song Dynasty. But his talent was not being appreciated and he was being removed repeatedly from his government post. He wrote a lyric of Song Ci based on the scenic surroundings of the Red Cliffs, and used Zhou Yu’s deeds to contrast his own experience. Although he was very envious of Zhou Yu, he showed a carefree see through attitude.

Silent Version of Water Scene
Director: Qiao Shengxiang
China | 2018 | 11’ | In Chinese Sign Language, with Chinese and English subtitles | Colour | HD

No conductor, no music. Dance to the Deaf is an immersion back in life as well as an unbridled artistic expression. We interpret life with free variation of unrestrained body movements. A strong power of art specific to deaf culture has thus been co-constructed by the silent existence and the tangible body. We are hence exposed to everything in the world more thoroughly. The film won the “Best Director Award” at the Shanghai International Deaf Film Festival, and was nominated for People’s Choice Award of The 2nd Tokyo International Deaf Film Festival.
