Power in Our Hands
‘Power in our Hands’ is a documentary compilation of historical archive footage of the Deaf community.
In an exciting twist of fate, a group of builders accidently stumbled across long-lost film from the British Deaf Association, dating back to the 1930s. Combining social history and archive film with contemporary interviews, and released in the 125th anniversary year of the British Deaf Association, this film presents Deaf people as an active and resilient community that have long-campaigned for their language to be recognised. From the social scenes of the 1930s, to the march for BSL recognition in 2000, this film delivers a fascinating insight into what the Deaf community has had to go through in their struggle for equality.
Event includes BSL archive footage provided by National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.
The film screening will be followed by a short post film discussion led by a representative from the BDA.
