Life and Deaf Picks up Award in Berlin

Babylon_Cinema

On Sunday evening our film, Life and Deaf picked up one of the three main prizes at the 6th Zebra Poetry Film Festival. The 'RITTER SPORT Film Prize' was awarded to Director Eelyn Lee during the closing ceremony in Berlin's Babylon Cinema. Eelyn says, ".... It's great to have the film recognised and encouraging to know that it reaches out to international audiences...."  

Two of the young deaf poets and actors also attended the festival. Nadeem who plays the angry young man in the film made an impassioned plea to a packed auditorium: ".... you don't have to feel guilty about us. We're deaf and we're OK .... really, we're OK...." 

Life and Deaf will launch online early next year. In the meantime watch this space for special screenings.........

 

UK talent is Celebrated in Berlin
Another UK Filmmaker won the 'Goethe Film Prize' at the festival. 'I Come From' features a poem and performance by Joseph Buckley and is beautifully illustrated by mesmerizing shots of Leeds. The short film is part of a feature-length documentary, We Are Poets. It's great that Zebra Poetry Film Festival has acknowledged both of our films which celebrate young people from UK cities.
