“Here and There”
RT: 11 minutes | NETHERLANDS | Dutch Sign Language and Ethiopian Sign Language | Genre: Documentary | Directed by: Jascha Blume
Through the eyes of seventeen-year-old girls from two sides of the world, they show their daily lives: The twins from a slum in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and the girl from a farming family in a village in the north of the Netherlands. They are all profoundly deaf. Their lives are totally different, yet the same. The film shows how close they are to each other, wherever they are. Deaf community around the world is one big global community, a virtual deaf country without borders.
