Overview

The two-hour PBS documentary Through Deaf Eyes, exploring nearly 200 years of deaf life in America, debuted to critical acclaim on PBS in March 2007. The film presents the shared experiences of American history -- family life, education, work, and community connections -- from the perspective of deaf citizens. Interviews include community leaders, historians, and deaf Americans with diverse views on language use, technology, and identity. Bringing a deaf cinematic view to the film are six short films by deaf media artists and filmmakers. Poignant, sometimes humorous, these films draw on the media artists' own lives and are woven throughout the documentary. Through Deaf Eyes does not approach the topic of deaf history from the perspective of sentimentality, nor does it deny the physical reality of being deaf. The documentary takes a straightforward look at life for people who are part of the cultural-linguistic group using American Sign Language and often define themselves as "Deaf" with a capital "D," as well as deaf people who, for a variety of reasons, do not identify with the Deaf cultural community. The history often shows that intersections between deaf and Deaf people are many and that oppression and discrimination are common experiences. The DVD offers extras such as a making-of featurette, an interview with director Larry Hott, and 25 minutes of historic footage featuring deaf performers of American Sign Language.
