Filmed in London, Life & Deaf evokes the lives of a set of characters who are young, deaf and wanting to be heard. With dialogue written in poetic verse, the film takes us on a dream-like journey through markets, housing estates and the River Thames. Many of the lines are delivered straight to camera creating a direct and sometimes awkward relationship with the viewer but ultimately the film is a teenage plea for recognition from the city itself.

Life and Deaf was awarded the ‘RITTER SPORT Film Prize’ at the 6th Zebra Poetry Film Festival in Berlin in 2012.
