Synopsis

One of the most astonishing films you will ever see. It may help to remember that the cast is deaf and you hear things they do not. Other than that you will find yourself immersed into their world, set in a crumbling State Boarding School for deaf adolescents, where the staff have effectively handed control to the gangs and cliques of students. Whilst at times uncomfortable viewing it is testament to the power of the film that it will remain with you long after the final credits.

Thanks to Metrodome

Critics

open_quote This is a grimly compelling, explicit and violent film which is also a silent movie.... But the main question is: signing is a language like any other, so why not have subtitles? How is our experience of this different from any foreign-language movie without subtitles? The point, I think, is that their silence underscores their alienation from us. They are a different tribe: outside the law, below the salt. close_quote The Guardian
