Deaf Jam (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Deaf Jam.
Deaf Jam, a feature length documentary, is a coming of age story for deaf teen, Aneta Brodski, as she explores ASL (American Sign Language) poetry. As her poetry evolves she boldly decides to compete in a spoken word poetry slam among her hearing peers. Eventually, she meets Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet and the two collaborate on a hear/deaf duet. Aneta is an Israeli immigrant and her collaboration with Tahani becomes a metaphor for the political world around them.
