The Silent Child (PG) & Power in our Hands (PG) Double Bill

JUNCTION, Paradise Place, Goole , DN14 5DL

19 May 2018

Family Friendly

A double bill celebrating the Deaf community, as part of Deaf Awareness Week.

The Silent Child centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl, who lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication. An insightful short story, inspired by real life events, which observes the avoidable struggles that deaf children face.

Power in Our Hands is a ground-breaking documentary – containing newly digitised archive footage available to the public for the first time – on the Deaf community’s fight for civil rights and principally, the right to be heard. Combining social history and archive film with contemporary interviews, Power in Our Hands explores the secret history and heritage of the Deaf community in the UK and gives people a glimpse into Deaf culture that is mostly hidden from the hearing world.

The evening will be fully inclusive for the deaf and those hard of hearing.
