SIGN is a silent film about the relationship between a hearing man and a Deaf man.
SIGN marks the first collaboration between actor/director/bestselling author Andrew Keenan-Bolger, writer/composer Adam Wachter and actor/director Alexandria Wailes. Using only silent vignettes, a musical score and American Sign Language, SIGN tells the story of the relationship between Ben, a hearing man, and Aaron, who is deaf.
We were inspired to portray this under-explored human experience with the help and collaboration of our talented Deaf friends in the New York theatre community, combining Andrew’s passion for visual imagery with Adam’s love of musical storytelling.
The film was shot in a four-day marathon session in multiple locations across New York City, on a set staffed by actors, ASL interpreters, Deaf consultants and many passionate hearing and Deaf volunteers.
