A Love Divided - a short film
Solar Bear Deaf Youth Theatre
What happens when you fall in love with the boy who lives on the wrong side of town? It can only lead to heartache and tragedy.
Solar Bear Deaf Youth Theatre present a contemporary version of Shakespeare's tragic tale. In a gritty urban city the river separates the Southsiders from the Northsiders but this doesn't keep the lovers apart. Their friends, and their families, don't approve and will do what it takes to keep them from being together with tragic consequences.
A dark and haunting silent film in black and white with an atmospheric original soundtrack.
