Power In Our Hands
15 June 2016
Glasgow Film Theatre is proud to share the documentation video for their successful school & public screenings of POWER IN OUR HANDS A 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 Assocation, dating back to the 1930s. The forgotten footage has now been compiled into a documentary with its narrative being the recognition of British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf rights. This film presents Deaf people as an active and resilient community that have long-campaigned for their language to be recognised.

Glasgow Film Theatre would like to say a big thank you to their audiences and to Geraldine Heaney for making this film. Thank you also to the BDA and the ICO for their support through this journey.< Go Back to News
