This film is about ‘Two Worlds’ – Deaf and Hearing – and is split into two sections. The first section is an interview documentary with a profoundly Deaf adult about his experiences growing up and the second section is a performance of a song written about those experiences. The song is presented in 2 languages, BSL and English, at the same time, using ‘split screen’ technology. The message is that barriers can be broken down by using language to communicate with one another and learn about different cultures. This opens up new worlds and wider opportunities for everyone.
