HERE/NOT HERE, dir. Bim Ajadi

Now a yearly staple, London Short Film Festival presents short films meditating Deaf identity, culture and language from both D/deaf and hearing storytellers.

From star-crossed lovers lamenting lockdown to supernatural occurrences, this year’s choices combine narrative structure and the lyricism of sign language and visual vernaculars to capture Deaf experiences buffering against a hearing world.

Each film captures both the uniqueness and universalities of the Deaf experience, engaging audiences both D/deaf or hearing. Guest-programmed by Rinkoo Barpaga. 75’

 

All films will have closed captioning. 

 

Please note, this screening can only be accessed by UK audiences. This programme contains sexual harassment.
