Hear Art Screening
In celebration of Deaf Awareness week, Hear Art will be showcasing a trilogy of short films directed and written by UK based deaf filmmakers.
Hear Art is an award winning organisation which is breaking boundaries in the UK film industry and merging the hearing and deaf film world. Merton Art Space will be screening three incredible and moving short films to celebrate deaf cinema.
In partnership with Academy Award winning Slick Films and The Royal Association for Deaf people:
ONE LETTER directed by Brian Duffy, 2022 – ‘A man reunites with his deaf cousin at a family remembrance – and long simmering tensions and resentments come to the boil’.
HAIR UNCOVERED directed by Cathy Heffernan, 2022 – ‘When an Iranian female artist cuts off her own hair, she was defying the regime shegrew up under and setting herself free’.
NIGHT SHIFT directed by Bim Aiadi, 2022 – ‘A deaf, female security guard on the night shift observes a man in a midst of a crisis. When they encounter each other they find a new way to communicate’.
All three short films have been selected, nominated or won an award (The British Short Film Awards) during the Short Film Festival circuit in 2022.
