Overview

Overview Deaf Jam

USA, 2011, 70 mins
Director, Judy Lieff

In Deaf Jam, Aneta Brodski, a deaf teen, seizes the day when she’s introduced to American Sign Language (ASL) Poetry and boldly enters the spoken word slam scene. In a wondrous twist, Aneta, an Israeli immigrant living in the Queens section of New York City, eventually meets Tahani, a hearing Palestinian slam poet. The two women embark on a collaboration and perform a duet, creating a new form of slam poetry that speaks to both the hearing and the Deaf. Our screening is organized by parents of deaf children working to raise understanding of the deaf experience. The Sous Chef of our restaurant, The Marquee Lounge, is Scott Clark, whose wife Sharon is proud mom to daughter Sarah Joella, who was born deaf. Aneta Brodski, Sharon Clark, Zachary Handler of Baltimore Medical System and the American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC) make up a dynamic panel following the film. Preceding the screening, Aneta Brodski, Femi the DriFish, Quest Visual Theater and local teen, Devon Thomas, perform in a poetry and rap slam. Presented in partnership with ASDC as a fundraiser for families to attend ASDC’s Biannual conference in June. Film 7:30pm; panel follows. $15, $10 mbrs.
