TRAILER FILM - "POWER IN OUR HANDS":
‘Power in our Hands’ is a compilation of historical archive footage of the Deaf community. The idea for the film began in 2004 when, in an exciting twist of fate, a group of builders accidentally stumbled across the long-lost film from the BDA, dating back to the 1930s.
The forgotten footage has now been compiled into a documentary (lasting 70 minutes). It gives a fascinating insight into what the Deaf community has had to go through in their struggle for equality.
The documentary gives people a glimpse into Deaf culture with previously unseen footage being revealed for the very first time.
The film premiered at BFI Southbank on 11 November 2015 with a large number of people from the Deaf community in attendance and the public screenings will take place in cinemas across the UK from February 2016.
Please stay tuned for screenings information in early 2016 via BDA's website in events section.
