An authentic look inside a deaf club by deaf filmmaker Simon Herdman

Deaf filmmaker Simon Herdman sent me this fantastic short documentary earlier tonight, filmed at Newcastle’s deaf club. At a time when deaf clubs are increasingly threatened (Middlesbrough’s deaf club is the latest to be faced with local cuts) this is an incredibly valuable look at what deaf clubs mean to the people who attend them, often for many years. Here’s the video and you can read Simon’s blog post about the short documentary here.
