Deaf Jam Thoughts

adoroshow's picture

Two pretty unrelated thoughts but the two parts of Deaf Jam that were most striking to me:

1. When, at the slam poetry event, we saw Aneta perform her piece in silence for the first time.  Before that moment, the filmmakers had set all onscreen ASL poetry performances to music--which was likely a calculated move, but at least for me I hadn't realized how different it would be to experience the performance without accompaniment.

2. Towards the end, introducing the conversations about intersectionality & the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  I don't really have fully-formed thoughts on this, I just thought it was interesting.
