Director, screenwriter and journalist focusing on Deaf culture
Author: Charlie Swinbourne
I am an award winning filmmaker and journalist with a special interest in deaf culture (I am partially deaf and fluent in BSL). I've written and directed comedies, dramas and documentaries and written journalism for the Guardian, Mirror and BBC Online. I've appeared on Radio 4, BBC News and Watchdog commenting on deaf issues. I also edit deaf blog The Limping Chicken, where I broke the worldwide story of the fake interpreter at Nelson Mandela's memorial service.
