Project Description

Through Deaf Eyes explores almost 200 years of Deaf life in America and presents a broad range of perspectives on what it means to be deaf. The film is propelled by the stories of people, both eminent and ordinary and sheds light on events that have shaped Deaf lives: the creation of schools for the deaf students; the debate about American Sign Language; the campaign for a deaf-friendly telephone, the TTY; the fight for a deaf president at Gallaudet University; and some very loud rock and roll.
